    All nine Democrats on the US Senate Judiciary Committee said in a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday that he should recuse himself from investigations into President Donald Trump ties to Russia.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The investigation should move forward without any political pressure or influence, the letter added.

    "[W]e ask that you recuse yourself from any investigations into contacts between the Trump campaign, transition team, or administration and Russian government officials or associates, including ongoing investigations into Russian interference with the 2016 election," the nine senators stated.

    The letter also requested that Sessions agree to comply with the Justice Department (DOJ) policy limiting communication between the White House and DOJ on criminal or civil enforcement matters.
