Breaking: Sessions to Recuse from Investigation

Breitbart News Network reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will recuse himself from the controversial investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential elections. Although Attorney General Sessions was in contact with Russians during the campaign as part of his duties as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, it was not understood from the reports if Sessions actually did speak to Russians specifically about the 2016 presidential election and how that may have influenced the election. Also, previous reports from news agencies did not state how Russia may have interfered with the US elections. During a press conference this afternoon, Sessions said, “Having concluded those meetings today, I have decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States”. This move will embolden opposition in the divided congress to further their speculation of what they feel Sessions’ contact with Russians, as part of his duties as a member of the Armed Services Committee, may have had on the 2016 US presidential elections.
