Eshoo: Sessions Should Resign Immediately
March 2nd, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C—Today, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement on Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“The Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the top law enforcement official in our nation lied under oath about meeting with the Russians, and for this he should resign immediately. Lying under oath when testifying before the Senate during his nomination hearing makes him unfit to serve.
“The questions continue to mount about Russia’s role in our national elections, who met with whom, if there was any collusion on the part of the Trump campaign with the Russians, and why the President consistently defends Vladimir Putin. This is why a bipartisan independent commission should be established to get the facts and pursue the truth. The American people deserve to know who did what and the extent of the damage to our democracy.”
