Attorney General Jeff Sessions could testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee as early as next month.
In a letter from Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, dated Monday, the committee chairman wrote that "unfortunately we still do not have a confirmed date" for the committee's normal Department of Justice oversight hearing.
Sessions' appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee would come amid numerous congressional and Justice Department investigations into President Trump's possible ties to Russia and the country's meddling in the 2016 election.
According to Grassley, discussions between his staff and Sessions' staff have led to possible testimony on Sept. 19, Sept. 27 or Oct 3. Grassley asked Sessions to reply no later than Wednesday with a date.
Sessions faced pressure to testify before the Senate panel last month following Washington Post report from July revealing he discussed Trump campaign-related matters with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
In June, Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee, saying that he "never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States."
During his confirmation hearing, Sessions said he had not met with any Russian officials when he was a senator and advising Trump's campaign. When that was disproved, Sessions amended his testimony and recused himself from the Justice Department's Russia investigation.
