The California senator is the top Democrat on the committee.

In a letter to committee chairman Sen Chuck Grassley, Feinstein notes that Sessions hasn't been before the committee since his January confirmation hearing.

She says it's important the committee hear directly from Sessions in light of a Washington Post report last week. That story said intelligence intercepts showed the Russian ambassador to the U.S. told Moscow that he and Sessions had discussed campaign-related issues.

Sessions has said he has no recollection of ever discussing the Trump campaign with the ambassador.

Trump recently lashed out at Sessions in a New York Times interview. He also described Sessions as "beleaguered" in a tweet Monday.
