Linda Sánchez Calls on Attorney General to Resign
Washington, DC – Representative Linda Sánchez (CA-38), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus, this morning called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign following damning revelations in the media that the Attorney General lied under oath about his contacts with Russian government officials during his confirmation hearings:
“Attorney General Sessions, in his confirmation hearings, swore to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. He apparently did not. The recent revelations that the Attorney General lied under oath about his contacts with Russian government officials only adds to the continued deceptions by the Trump Administration. It is unconscionable that America’s top law enforcement officer could fail such a basic tenant of our legal system.
“The Attorney General breached a duty so fundamental to the responsibilities of the office he swore to uphold. The Attorney General must resign immediately.”
