Press Release

Washington, D.C. -- Congressman Dwight Evans released the following statement today as a response to reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions may have lied to the American people under oath about his involvement with the Russian government during the 2016 Presidential Election during his confirmation hearings:

“The truth is the truth and it will be brought to light. If in fact Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied to the American people about his involvement with the Russian Government during his confirmation hearings, the Administration must make a powerful statement, do what is right, and demand his resignation,” Congressman Dwight Evans said. “This type of conspiracy and confusion threatens the safety of the American public and that is something I cannot and will not tolerate. The American people deserve a clear answer about Russian involvement in the 2016 Presidential Election as well as communication with officials on President Trump’s leadership team.”

Recent reports make it incredibly evident that we need an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate the influence between the Russian Government and the Trump Administration.
