Prof. Painter Authors New York Times Op-Ed on Attorney General Sessions’ Russian Communications

Professor Richard Painter wrote an op-ed in the New York Times about the recent revelation that Attorney General Jeff Sessions communicated with Russia’s Ambassador to the United States during his work on the Trump presidential campaign. “His answer [during the confirmation hearing when asked about communications with Russia] was at best a failure to provide accurate information to Congress,” wrote Prof. Painter. “We do not yet know all the facts, but we know enough to see that Attorney General Sessions has to go.”
