Attorney General Jeff “I Hate Weed” Sessions will testify in a public hearing in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday afternoon.

But before we get too excited, remember that Sessions is a liar who met with Russians and completely forgot that he met with Russians during his confirmation hearing for attorney general. He also fake-recused himself from the Russian investigation, only to be totally involved in the firing of FBI Director James Comey, the chief investigator of all things related to Russia-Trump collusion.

“[Sessions] believes it is important for the American people to hear the truth directly from him and looks forward to answering the committee’s questions tomorrow,” a Justice Department spokesperson told CNN.

The news comes after Comey’s blistering testimony and closed-session hearing with the intelligence committee, in which Comey noted that Sessions had a third, undisclosed interaction with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., people familiar with the briefing told CNN.

Hopefully he won’t say that he’s unable to answer questions in a public setting, like those before him. But a statement that Sessions released hints that he may be ready to talk.
