Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied under oath.
During his confirmation hearing, Sessions forcefully stated that he had no contact with Russian officials before or after the 2016 campaign. A recent bombshell report by the Washington Post discovered he met with the Russian ambassador twice before the election.
This is a disgrace. Sessions must resign as attorney general immediately and a special prosecutor should launch a thorough, independent investigation into the ties between Donald Trump’s team and the Russian government.
Anything less is unacceptable.
Jeff Sessions, one of Donald Trump’s most prominent supporters during the campaign, was already an inappropriate choice to lead an investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia. Now we know it’s even worse. After lying under oath about Russia, Sessions has no business being our nation’s top law enforcement official.
