Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Tuesday tried to steer Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee away from questions regarding the attorney general’s failure to disclose at least two meeting with the Russian ambassador, asking head of the United States Department of Justice is “he likes spy fiction,” or “Jason Bourne or James Bond movies.”

“Thank you for saying this Sen. Cotton,” Sessions replied. “It’s just like through the looking glass. I mean, what is this?”
