Update: Trump told reporters AG Sessions still has his “total” confidence despite undisclosed meetings Sessions had last year with Russia’s ambassador to the US.
Democrats have called on Sessions to resign, and even some Republicans have said he should recuse himself from an investigation into Russia’s election meddling, but Trump is standing by his attorney general. Asked if Sessions testified truthfully in his confirmation hearings, Trump said: “I think he probably did.”
Should he recuse himself? Trump: “I don’t think so.”
With Top Democrats urging his resignation (and several Republicans demanding he recuse himself), AG Sessions has at least one defender as The White House (after denying any knowledge of Sessions’ meetings with the Russian ambassador) stood by him. Sean Spicer told Fox News saying that “there’s nothing” for Sessions “to recuse himself” from.
