US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has agreed to quit himself from an FBI investigation into alleged Russian interference in the US Election in 2016.

His comments on Thursday came a day after the Washington Post reported that Sessions met the Russian ambassador in July and September, just as accusations of Russian interference in the election were building.

At a news conference, Sessions drew a distinction between his conversations with the Russian ambassador in his role as a senator and his role in the Trump campaign.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday he would recuse himself from overseeing the federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the presidential election, citing the advice of his staff.

“I believe those recommendations are right and just,” he said. “Therefore I have recused myself from matters with the Trump campaign.”
