Mar 2, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Cartwright issued the following statement amid reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not disclose meeting with Russian officials during his confirmation hearings: 

"The recent revelations that Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with the Russian Ambassador directly contradict his testimony during his Senate confirmation hearings. I believe that it is too late for Mr. Sessions to save his credibility and that recusal is not enough. After careful consideration, I join my colleagues in asking that Mr. Sessions resigns from his post as Attorney General."
