WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will hold a news conference at 4 p.m. ET/2100 GMT on Thursday, the Justice Department said in a statement.

Sessions is likely to be asked about revelations late Wednesday that he met with Russia's ambassador twice last year but did not disclose the contacts in Senate testimony.
