Top Democrats are demanding the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions over contact with the Russian ambassador that were not disclosed in his confirmation hearing.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi says the Attorney General lied during his confirmation hearing:

(Pelosi) "He has proved that he is unqualified and unfit to serve in that position of trust."

The Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating potential ties between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, but Republican member James Lankford says a meeting between then-Senator Jeff Sessions and the Russian ambassador is no smoking gun:

(Lankford) "I'm just appalled at the rapid rush to judgment on something when we have almost no facts out there."

There are Republicans joining calls for Sessions to recuse himself from any Russia investigation, including House Oversight Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz.
