Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) just called for a special prosecutor to look into Russia’s influence on the 2016 presidential election and to investigate news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions may have perjured himself before Congress by denying conversations with Russian officials during the campaign.
He also called on Sessions to resign.
“Because the Department of Justice should be above reproach, for the good of the country, Attorney General Sessions should resign,” said Schumer this morning. “But, whatever one’s views are on resignation, the most important thing we must do is ensure the integrity of the investigation. Has it already been compromised? What can we do to ensure it moves forward in a way that ultimately leads to the unvarnished truth?”
