Democratic senators asked FBI to investigate Jeff Sessions for perjury

Source: ABC News

Two Democratic senators revealed that they asked former FBI Director James Comey to investigate Attorney General Jeff Sessions for perjury stemming from his confirmation hearing testimony.

Sens. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Al Franken, D-Minn., issued a joint statement today alleging that Sessions had "provided false testimony" regarding his interactions with Russian officials.

"He made no attempt to correct his misleading testimony until The Washington Post revealed that, in fact, he had at least two meetings with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 presidential campaign. Yet the attorney general never fully explained or even acknowledged the misrepresentations in his testimony, and we remained concerned that he had still not been forthcoming about the extent of his contacts with Russian officials," the joint statement reads.

"We served with the attorney general in the Senate and on the Judiciary Committee for many years. We know he would not tolerate dishonesty if he were in our shoes. If it is determined that the attorney general still has not been truthful with Congress and the American people about his contacts with Russian officials during the campaign, he needs to resign," the joint statement reads.

1. Probably one more reason why Comey was fired. This is reaching cover up stage.
