Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to immediately resign following reports that he spoke to the Russian ambassador to the United States during President Trump’s campaign.

“When Senator Sessions testified under oath that ‘I did not have communications with the Russians,’ his statement was demonstrably false, yet he let it stand for weeks – and he continued to let it stand even as he watched the President tell the entire nation he didn’t know anything about anyone advising his campaign talking to the Russians.”

The Washington Post on Wednesday reported that Sessions spoke once privately with Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak. He also spoke with Kislyak and other ambassadors during an event in July.
