U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions faces the scrutiny of a Senate Committee Tuesday as lawmakers continue to look for a link between Trump staff members to Russia.

But you’re not seeing the big hype that lead up to last weeks Senate testimony from former FBI Director James Comey. We asked Brandon Rottinghaus at the University of Houston why there’s a lack of news networks countdown clocks and watch parties and neighborhood bars.

He says a lot of that is due to the lack of response from the White House following last week’s Comey testimony.

Rottinghaus says people want answers and they didn’t get them from Comey.

You can expect the AG to play defense during questioning.

“He’s going to have to answer questions that are related to his role in relationship to the Russians before he was in office.”

Rottinghaus says lawmakers will also grill Sessions on whether or not he had any part in the firing of James Comey.
