Yarmuth Calls on President Trump to Fire U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) released the statement below following reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearings about contact he’s had with Russian officials:

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied under oath and has to go. It shouldn’t even be his decision to resign—President Trump must fire him immediately. Nearly every single day, new information emerges that further proves the need for an independent investigation into President Trump’s personal, political, and financial ties to the Russians. The American people deserve answers.”
