Trump’s Attorney General Under ‘Fire’ Over Russia
The United States government has confirmed Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, met with Russia’s ambassador in 2016.
At his January confirmation hearing, Mr Sessions, a senator at the time, said he had no contracts with the Russians during the campaign, stressing that he never met any Russian official to discuss campaign issues.
The democrats, have however accused him of lying under oath, saying he must resign.
They have also called on him to step aside from the FBI investigation which he oversees as Attorney General such as the alleged Russian interference in the U.S election.
Mr Trump’s National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, was fired last month after he misled the White House about his conversations with the Russian ambassador, allegedly regarding sanctions against Moscow.
