Rep. Welch on Thursday released the follow statement calling on U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign his post immediately:
"Attorney General Sessions, while under oath, at best misled the Senate Judiciary Committee about his contacts with Russian officials. At worst, he committed perjury. He can no longer serve as America's chief law enforcement officer, let alone oversee an investigation into Trump campaign officials' contacts with Russians during the election. He should resign from office immediately."
