White House Dodges Questions about Sessions’ Role in Investigation of Russia
By Steve Neavling
The White House won’t answer questions about whether Attorney General Jeff Sessions should recuse himself from the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election, the Washington Post reports.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who has called for a special prosecutor to investigate the Russian interference, said Sessions should not lead the investigation because it represents a conflict.
But deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders won’t say whether Sessions should withdraw from the investigation.
The appropriate time to discuss Sessions’ role, she said, is after the congressional committees complete their own investigations, even though they are independent of the FBI probe.
