Earlier today, JOL News reported that U.S. President Donald Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. twice during the election campaign. After a few hours, Sessions responded to the reports: “I have not met with any Russians at any time to discuss any political campaign.”
Sessions told NBC News: “Those remarks are unbelievable to me and are false. And I don’t have anything else to say about that.” When asked about the Democrats’ demand that he resign, he said: “I have said whenever it’s appropriate, I will recuse myself. There’s no doubt about that.”
Sessions’ spokeswoman confirmed that he met with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. before the election last year when he was a senator but stressed that he did not lie about this during his confirmation hearing. She said that “there was absolutely nothing misleading about his answer” because he was asked about communications between Russia and the Republican presidential campaign and not about his meetings as a senator with the Armed Services Committee.
