WBUR: All Members Of The Mass. Congressional Delegation Call For AG Sessions To Resign

The 11 members of Massachusetts’ all-Democratic congressional delegation are united in calling for the resignation of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in the wake of reports of Sessions’ contact with the Russian ambassador during the presidential campaign.

Citing an unnamed source, and following other news outlets’ reports, NPR reports that then-Sen. Sessions — and an adviser to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump — spoke twice with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2016, but then testified at his Senate confirmation hearing in January that he had not “had communications with the Russians.”

Beginning Wednesday night, each of the Massachusetts members of Congress individually rolled out statements denouncing Sessions’ reported actions.
