Rep. Meeks Demands AG Sessions Resign

Washington, D.C.—In response to reports that Jeff Sessions lied to the Senate during his confirmation hearing, Congressman Gregory W. Meeks, Ranking Member of the Europe Eurasia and Emerging Threats Subcommittee, issued the following statement:

“In lying under oath to his former colleagues, Jeff Sessions has shown blatant disregard for the truth and disrespect for the institution of the Senate. He has lost any remaining credibility and the American people cannot count on him to uphold and enforce our nation’s laws.

“Sen. Sessions’ severe lack of honesty, integrity, and judgment only reinforce why I originally opposed his confirmation. At this point, there should be no other option on the table: Jeff Sessions must resign from the office of Attorney General immediately.”
