Attorney General Sessions held a press conference where he announced that he is RESCUING himself from ALL investigations related to the 2016 election campaign from this point forward!
In fact, he didn’t do anything wrong. All he did was meeting the Russian ambassador in his official capacity as a member of the Senate Armed Service Committee, which is normal political practice.

President Trump told him NOT to recuse himself, but since Sessions was involved in the campaign, he decided it was the right thing to do.
The best thing about this is that now Democrats have lost all leverage they wanted to use to urge Sessions to resign. He just beat them in their own game, and he did it brilliantly!
“DURING THE COURSE OF THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS, I HAVE MET WITH THE RELEVANT SENIOR CAREER DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS TO DISCUSS WHETHER I SHOULD RECUSE MYSELF FROM ANY MATTERS ARISING FROM THE CAMPAIGNS FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,” HE SAID. “HAVING CONCLUDED THOSE MEETINGS TODAY, I HAVE DECIDED TO RECUSE MYSELF FROM ANY EXISTING OR FUTURE INVESTIGATIONS OF ANY MATTERS RELATED IN ANY WAY TO THE CAMPAIGNS FOR PRESIDENT.”
“THIS ANNOUNCEMENT SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS CONFIRMATION OF THE EXISTENCE OF ANY INVESTIGATION OR SUGGESTIVE OF THE SCOPE OF ANY SUCH INVESTIGATION,” SESSIONS ADDED.
“IN THE END, I HAVE FOLLOWED THE RIGHT PROCEDURE, JUST AS I PROMISED THE [SENATE] COMMITTEE I WOULD.”
