(Before It's News)

As expected, U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions has recused himself from any federal investigations involving the Trump campaign and Russia, this after Democrats called for his resignation for his past meeting with the Russian ambassador.

In an afternoon press conference, Sessions said that he had spoken to White House counsel before officially announcing his recusal, even after President Trump said that he didn’t believe he should remove himself from any investigations involving Russia.

Sessions infatically stated that any and all talk about him meeting with Russian operatives as a surrogate for the Trump for President campaign was “totally false.”

“Let me be clear I have never had meetings with Russian operatives.”

Sessions did say that he and a couple staffers once met with the Russian Ambassador, but only in his former official capacity as U.S. Senator.

What was discussed at the meeting, among other things, was one of Session’s visits to Russia with a church group in 1991 and terrorism, but Sessions did not “recall”  having any “political  conversations.”

“I don’t recall political conversations”
