MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATIC PARTY CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE RESIGNATION OF ATTORNEY GENERAL SESSIONS
BOSTON – Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford released the following statement today calling on the resignation of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions:
“We stand with the entire Massachusetts congressional delegation in calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign immediately.
“Our nation’s top law enforcement official lied under oath about meeting with the Russians not once but twice during a time he was one of the Trump campaign’s top advisors and surrogates. This latest revelation about the ongoing relationship between Trump and the Russians is a blow to our national security and the American people deserve answers.
“Donald Trump and his advisors have lied repeatedly about their connections to Russia. Until a thorough, independent investigation is conducted, the security of our democracy and the integrity of our elections hang in the balance.”
