BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he will recuse himself of any inquiry into Russian interference in U.S. election.

He made the announcement at a Thursday afternoon press conference after consulting with Justice Department lawyers about his role in investigations into Russian contacts by Trump campaign associates.

Sessions also issued a statement saying he never met with Russian officials “to discuss issues of the campaign.”
