Washington, D.C. — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after Attorney General Sessions delivered a public statement announcing he will only narrowly recuse himself from overseeing the investigation of the Trump Campaign only:

“Attorney General Sessions’ narrow recusal and his sorry attempt to explain away his perjury are totally inadequate.  He is clearly trying to maintain his ability to control the larger investigation into the sprawling personal, political and financial grip Russia has on the Trump Administration.

“Attorney General Sessions’ lies to the Senate and to the American people make him unfit to serve as the chief law enforcement officer of our country.  He must resign immediately.”
