Rep. Ami Bera Statement on Jeff Sessions' Recusal from any Investigation into 2016 Election

Mar 3, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. -- Vice-ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Rep. Ami Bera released the following statement following Attorney General Jeff Sessions' announcement that he would recuse himself from any Department of Justice investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election: 

Jeff Sessions' decision to recuse himself from any investigation is the right thing to do, but if it's found that he lied under oath, he must resign and should face the legal consequences. Otherwise, it undermines the integrity of our laws. Our national security and enforcing our laws are not partisan issues.

Rep. Bera has served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee since the 113th Congress, in 2013.
