Congressional Black Caucus Calls on Jeff Sessions to Resign


The Congressional Black Caucus is calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign.

A majority of the 49-member caucus voted to issue a statement calling for Sessions to resign because of how he has handled conversations he had with Russian officials during the presidential campaign.

"Every day the Department of Justice prosecutes people for lying under oath, yet the man who leads the department has lied under oath on more than one occasion," the Congressional Black Caucus said Monday in a statement to the media. "Attorney General Sessions is unfit to serve as the top law enforcement official in the nation and should resign from his position immediately."

In his Senate confirmation hearing, Sessions failed to disclose his contacts with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the campaign.

After news reports revealed Sessions met with Kislyak on more than one occasion, Sessions acknowledged the meetings, but said they were not related to the Trump campaign and were relevant to his job at the time as a senator representing Alabama.
