March 2, 2017

(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) released the following statement after reports surfaced that now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied to his colleagues about his contact with Russia during President Trump’s campaign.

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has proved he’s ill-fit to serve and should immediately resign. When he misled the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sessions broke his bond of trust with the American people.

“We need an independent investigation into Russia’s influence over President Donald Trump and his administration, and we need it now.”
