SESSIONS BOWS OUT OF APPEARANCE ON BRINKLEY SHOW Washington (AP) - FBI Director William Sessions didn't show for a scheduled appearance on ABC's "This Week With David Brinkley" on Sunday to discuss the Waco cult disaster. Brinkley, in opening the program, said the Justice Department had ordered Sessions, who is fighting to keep his job amid charges of improprieties, not to appear. "We do not know why," Brinkley added. Then, at the conclusion of the show, presumably after some contact with Sessions, Brinkley said the FBI director "wants us to know that it was his idea not to come today, and he was no ordered to do so." FBI spokesman Barry Smith said the appearance had not yet been firmed up, and that the decision to bow out was "Director Session's decision and his decision alone." "He felt at this point in time it would be inappropriate to appear and discuss the [Waco cult] issues given that it might adversely impact any persecution of the case," said Smith in a telephone interview.
