Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign in light of newly released information that he lied under oath about his meetings with Russian officials.

“Every week, there is a new distraction from the administration preventing us from focusing on the important work of debating legislation such as a comprehensive jobs package that would put folks across Iowa and the nation back to work. It is now clear that Attorney General Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearings in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. In light of the newly released report, the Attorney General must resign.

“These new revelations about the Attorney General’s dealing with the Russians reinforce the need for a truly independent, outside, bipartisan investigation into the President and his staff’s dealings with Russians. A simple recusal is no longer enough, Attorney General Sessions must resign so that we can focus on creating jobs and growing our nation’s economy.”
