Rep. Jason Chaffetz must take further action and call for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s resignation
SALT LAKE CITY — After the Washington Post bombshell reporting that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had multiple contacts with Russia’s ambassador during the 2016 campaign, contradicting Sessions’s statements made under oath during his Senate confirmation hearings, we call on Representative Jason Chaffetz and all Republicans to demand Sessions’s resignation.
This is another major discovery about President Trump’s campaign contacts with Russian officials, and Congress must demand an independent investigation now.
Earlier today, Rep. Jason Chaffetz tweeted “AG Sessions should clarify his testimony and recuse himself.” This is a good first step, but further action must be demanded.
Integrity First PAC calls on Rep. Jason Chaffetz to put his country ahead of his party and personal ambitions and call for Jeff Sessions’s resignation.
