Keating calls on Attorney General Sessions to resign

Says AG's "own statements are contradictory and by definition untruthful"
Congressman Bill Keating has called upon Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign.

Congressman Bill Keating – Ranking Member of the Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade Subcommittee of the Foreign Affairs Committee,  a senior Member of the Homeland Security Committee, and former Norfolk County District Attorney – has called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign, according to a release issued by his office at 11:27 a.m. Thursday.

Below is a statement from Congressman Keating:

“At his Senate confirmation hearing, Senator Sessions denied under oath that he had meetings with Russian officials. His next statement was that he met and does not recall what he discussed. Now, it has emerged that he met Russian officials twice, once as recent as September when Russian cyberattacks on the United States were already known. The Attorney General’s own statements are contradictory and by definition untruthful.

“As the Nation’s number one law enforcement official, Attorney General Sessions oversees the FBI, which is investigating Russian attacks on our elections and the Trump corporation’s investment issues.  The fact that he wouldn’t immediately recuse himself from that investigation underscores why he needs to resign.”
