Jeff Sessions Press Conference Live Stream – Watch Online
Jeff Sessions is holding a press conference on Thursday afternoon, and Gossip Cop has a live stream. Watch below.
The attorney general’s 4 p.m. press conference was announced with less than an hour’s warning. And it comes less than 24 hours after Department of Justice officials said he misled the Senate on his contact with Russia. As Gossip Cop reported, during his confirmation hearing, Sessions explicitly denied having “communications with the Russians” during Donald Trump’s campaign for president.
But now it’s being reported that he actually met with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. twice. After that revelation broke on Wednesday night, congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle began calling for Sessions to recuse himself from any investigation on Russia’s involvement in the presidential election. A number of Democrats have gone a step further, urging the attorney general to resign from his post. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Sessions’ confirmation was controversial, with questions about his ethics, conflicts of interest, and history of racism.
Earlier Thursday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer attempted to downplay the new reports, calling them a “false narrative.” And President Trump himself told reporters he still has “total” confidence in Sessions and he should not recuse himself. Celebrities have also reacted to Sessions not disclosing his Russia meetings, and “The View” called Sessions out for lying.
Now he will speak to the media for the first time and face the press. Check out the live stream below. NOTE: The live stream is no longer available.
