Congressman Marc Veasey

Representing the 33rd District of Texas

Veasey Demands Recusal and Resignation of Attorney General Sessions

Mar 2, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C.Congressman Marc Veasey, TX-33, released the following statement after the Department of Justice reported then-Senator Sessions had contact with Russian ambassadors during the 2016 campaign season:  

“Despite swearing under oath that he had no contact with Russian officials during the 2016 Presidential campaign, it is now clear that Attorney General Sessions was not honest and forthright in his responses. While I opposed Session’s original nomination based on his deplorable civil rights record, this latest revelation makes it even clearer that he is not fit to hold our country’s highest law enforcement position.”

“I repeat House Democrats’ call to create an independent, bi-partisan investigation into Russian influence on the Presidential campaign and within the Trump administration. Republicans have repeatedly ignored our requests and instead continued to shield the Trump administration from a fair, transparent investigation. The American people deserve answers and it is time for Attorney General Sessions to recuse him from any Russian related investigation and resign from his position permanently.”
