House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is demanding Attorney General Jeff Sessions resign from his cabinet post amid revelations he spoke with Russia’s ambassador to the United States twice during President Donald Trump’s campaign.
“Jeff Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing before the Senate,” Pelosi said, the Hill reported. “Under penalty of perjury, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee, ‘I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.’ We now know that statement is false.”
So her new angle to disrupt Trump’s presidency?
“Now, after lying under oath to Congress under his own communications with the Russians, the attorney general must resign,” Pelosi said, the Hill reported. “Sessions is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country and must resign.”
