KENNEDY CALLS FOR JEFF SESSIONS RESIGNATION

Mar 2, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Kennedy III today released the following statement calling for Jeff Sessions’ resignation after reports revealed he hid contacts with Russian officials.
 
"An Attorney General who refuses to defend LGBTQ students from discrimination and to uphold our sacred promise of access to the ballot box is unfit for the office. But last night's reports of Russian contacts followed by misleading statements to the public demand Jeff Sessions' immediate resignation.  There must be an independent investigation into the entire Trump campaign's Russian involvement and zero tolerance for cabinet officials and senior aides who provide false information to the American people. If the Trump Administration has nothing to hide, they have nothing to fear."
 
Kennedy was an outspoken opponent of Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as Attorney General based on concerns about his record on civil rights for women, minorities and the LGBTQ community.
