In response to reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with the Russian ambassador during the last year, apparently in direct contradiction to his sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, People For the American Way (PFAW) President Michael Keegan released the following statement:

“If Jeff Sessions knowingly misled the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearings, he should resign. Full stop.”
