U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with a Russian ambassador twice in 2016 when serving as a senator and adviser to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. Sessions was asked about contact between Russian officials and members of the Trump campaign during his confirmation hearing in January. Sessions did not disclose the meetings and responded that he had not "had communications with the Russians." House minority leader Nancy Pelosi has called on the attorney general to resign. We'll discuss the latest developments in the story.
