Session Vows to Recuse if Needed as Republicans Join Dems

Attorney General Jeff Sessions indicated Thursday that he would recuse himself from any investigation into Russia’s ties to President Trump when “appropriate,” the Washington Examiner reported.

When asked by NBC News outside his home about the matter, Sessions said he never talked about campaign matters with the Russians.

“I have not met with any Russians at any time to discuss any political campaign. And those remarks are unbelievable to me and are false,” he said.

Meantime, there are growing calls among Republicans for Sessions to recuse himself from any potential Russia investigation. Sen. Rob Portman joined Sen. Lindsey Graham in calling for a recusal, but Sen. Ted Cruz defended Sessions, calling his failure too disclose his contact with the Russian ambassador a “nothing burger.”

  1. Again, all they needed was a nice, shiny Reset Button and none of this would matter.

    Should’ve asked for more flexibility after the election, too.

  2. The current left wing hyped Russia/Attorney General Jeff Sessions crisis is reminiscent of one of Carl Reiner’s funniest movies. Produced in 1966 during the height of the Cold War, it was titled “The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming!” Paranoia shown by the residents of Gloucester, MA in the movie could easily pass for “headline events” on some of today’s news outlets.

  3. Every day now Schumer, Pelosi, et al are in front of the cameras demanding someone resign, recuse themselves, etc. – as if they’re in any position to make demands. It’s beyond tiresome, and disappointing some Republicans are joining in the charade.

    • They are in a position to make demands. Obama’s fingerprints and spies run throughout this government. And the GOPe is too determined to acquire more power for themselves personally than they are about the welfare of the country.

      Pelosi et al know the slim fiber of the Republican Party.

  4. I heard Sessions drank a Russian Vodka and Tonic……Treasonous Bastard!

    I still haven’t heard a shred of any evidence much less a plausible theory of the crimes supposedly committed…….Am I missing something??

  5. Jeff Sessions should not recuse himself.

    Graham and Portman are disgusting. As are any other Republicans who are joining the Democrats who are working to bring down this man who has more integrity and honor than the entire GOPe.

    And I am seriously concerned about what Barack Obama has done to infilitrate our government, especially DOJ and our intelligence agencies, and have bureaucrats and others work against a duly elected President.

    Disgusted beyond belief. It is borderline criminal and Obama and his actions should be investigated — seriously investigated. The collaborators should be sought out and fired. And the Republicans who cannot back the Republican President should walk across the aisle.

    Done with them.
