Top congressional Democrats called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign Wednesday after it was revealed that he had met with the Russian ambassador in the months before the election; POLITICO reports.

The revelation cast a fresh cloud over President Donald Trump’s administration, which has repeatedly denied any suspected ties between members of his election team and Russia.

Many Democrats and a few Republicans, including McCain and Graham — have called for a select committee to investigate the issue, but GOP leaders have so far rejected those calls.
