Top Republican lawmakers are calling for U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, just weeks after ex-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn fell on the sword after meeting with the same Russian ambassador to the U.S.
The lawmakers say Sessions should recuse himself from the federal investigations of whether Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election amid news that he met with Sergey Kislyak, the same man who met with Flynn, spurring his resignation, reports The Washington Post.
Sessions met with Kislyak but failed to say so at his recent confirmation hearing, writes The Post.
Republicans are not the only ones who have Sessions in their crosshairs after news of the assignation. All members of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee called for an “immediate criminal investigation” into Sessions’ statements before Congress, NBC Nightly News tweeted:
But President Donald Trump apparently is standing by his man. On Thursday afternoon, he told reporters he has “total confidence” in Sessions and doesn’t think he should recuse himself from the investigation, reports CNN.
