In the most charitable reading of last night’s news, it is now clear that Jeff Sessions misled the Senate Judiciary Committee while testifying that he had no contact with Russian government officials during the presidential campaign.
As such, I am calling on him to resign his post as Attorney General immediately.
President Trump’s National Security Advisor was already forced to resign when it became clear that he lied to the American people and the vice president about his conversations with Russia. Now, it appears the attorney general may have done the same to the U.S. Senate.
The chorus of voices calling for Jeff Sessions’ resignation has grown louder by the hour. Add your voice to theirs today.
I watched Attorney General Sessions’ press conference a short while ago, and am heartened to hear that he will recuse himself from any investigation into the Trump campaign’s relationship with the Russian government. Unfortunately, that is no longer enough. There is simply no way to assure that his compromised position on this issue will not continue to disable a thorough, independent investigation at the Department of Justice. He must step down.
Every best wish,
U.S. Senator, Connecticut
