Congressman Kevin McCarthy spoke to CNN about the current pressures on U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his meetings with a top Russian diplomat last year.

"I think the trust of the American people, you recuse yourself in these situations,” McCarthy said. "I don't have all the information in front of me. I don't want to pre-judge, but I just think for any investigation going forward, you want to make sure everybody trusts the investigation come... that there's no doubt within the investigation.”

Congressman Jason Chaffetz also tweeted Sessions should “clarify his testimony and recuse himself”.
