US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has denied during a Congress hearing having undisclosed meetings with Russian officials at a Washington DC hotel.

America's top law official also told the Senate Intelligence Committee that any suggestion he colluded with the Kremlin was "an appalling and detestable lie".

Sessions also vowed to defend his honour "against scurrilous and false allegations".

Sessions' remarks came after sacked FBI boss James Comey said he believed he was fired to influence the agency's investigation into Russian political meddling.
