Does Attorney General Jeff Sessions need to go? | The Tylt
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is accused of lying under oath to Congress during his confirmation hearings. He denied any communications with Russian operatives, when in fact he met with the Russian ambassador twice during the presidential campaign. Sessions has now recused himself from investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russia, but many say that's not enough—he must resign or be fired, and face charges of perjury.

Does Attorney General Jeff Sessions need to go?
Critics say Sessions' conduct is a disqualifying disgrace—we can't have the nation's top lawyer lying under oath.
But Sessions and the White House deny any wrongdoing on his part. Trump fully supports his Attorney General and calls the entire brouhaha "a witch hunt" by partisan Democrats.
The American Civil Liberties Union is calling for Sessions to step down and face charges. In America, is our top cop really above the law?
Under pressure, Sessions did recuse himself from the investigation of Trump campaign's ties to Russian operatives—but for many that's not enough.
Jeff Sessions both committed perjury and broke the Logan Act. Those are CRIMES. It's not recusal it's resignation— Louise Mensch (@LouiseMensch) March 2, 2017
Others on the right argue this outcry over Sessions is just an attempt to undermine the Trump presidency.
