Arizona Democrats: Jeff Sessions must resign and Special Prosecutor must be appointed

Statement from the Arizona Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron on last night’s revelations involving Jeff Sessions, a top Trump campaign surrogate, and his meetings with the Russian ambassador last year:

“National Security Advisor Michael Flynn lied to the Vice President of the United States and had to resign.

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied --under oath -- to the people of the United States, and he only has to recuse himself? No. Unacceptable.

“Attorney General Sessions must resign and a Special Prosecutor must be appointed to oversee the Trump-Russia investigations. Anything short of this, will only undermine the confidence Americans have in this government and will prolong the question of why this administration continues to cover-up Russia’s attack on our democracy.”
