Washington, March 3: US President Dold Trump has defended Attorney General Jeff Sessions as “an honest man” amid calls for him to quit over his newly-disclosed contacts with the Russian Ambassador to Washington. Trump on Thursday said Sessions did not make any misleading statements under oath during his confirmation hearings, but that he could have been more accurate in his responses to lawmakers, CNN reported. “Jeff Sessions is an honest man. He did not say anything wrong. He could have stated his response more accurately, but it was clearly not intentiol,” Trump said. “This whole rrative is a way of saving face for Democrats losing an election that everyone thought they were supposed to win. The Democrats are overplaying their hand. They lost the election and now, they have lost their grip on reality...It is a total witch hunt!” Earlier Thursday, Sessions bowed to intense political pressure and recused himself from any probe into charges that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election.
