Sessions Just Recused Himself From Russia Investigation

As word came to be on Wednesday night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions had spoken twice with the Russian envoy last year and failed to tell senators during his confirmation hearing. Sessions has now decided to recuse himself from federal investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

“I have recused myself in the matters that deal with the Trump campaign,” he said at a press conference.

Sessions also stated that “this announcement should not be interpreted as confirmation of the existence of any investigation or suggestive of the scope of such investigation.”

Many Democrats had urged Sessions to resign — led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) — from the Justice Department completely.

While at least eight Republicans called for Sessions to recuse himself. These include: GOP Reps. Brian Mast (Fla.), Mike Coffman (Colo.), Martha McSally (Ariz.), Darrell Issa (Calif.), Ryan Costello (Pa.), Barbara Comstock (Va.) Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.) and Carlos Curbelo (Fla.), all of which have been named as 2018 targets by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
