still may want a hat. sara bloomquist, channel 6 "action news." >> all right thank you. >> we turn now to an abc news special report o as w mentioned before there is news surrounding the attorney general. >> the two contacts he had with the russian ambassador one in fn the edge ofepublicaconvention t reportedly in senator sessions office on september 8th this is when reports were swirling with reports of possibl interference in the campaign and any rolen hacking the dnc emails getting them released through wikileaks we are learning that when he comes out in this press conference, i'm joined by john karl, we keep an eye on the podium and will recuse himself from the investigation. >> he really did not have any choice in the matter, this is a
highly sensitive investigation. the fact that he had a prominent position in the trump campaign, the very first senator to endorse donald trump and a key adviser during the campaign make its virtually impossible for him to make decisions on the investigation regarding russian influence in the campaign and add this latest controversy that he himself with the russian ambassador during the campaign, this is clearly something he had to do. i should point out that president trump just a short while ago in adties to saying he has confidence in jeff sessions if he should recluse himself, and he said no. >> this comes on the heels of firing the security adviser, michael flynn, he had conversation but did not talk about those with the vice phe vice president. that was the reason for his
firing as you see. >> it's good to be with you. welcome to the department of justice. jodi thank you for being with me. he is my chief of staff and jodi has been almost 020 years in the department of justice. >> let me share a few thoughts, first about the comments that i made to the committee that have been said to be incorrect and false. let me be clear. i never had meetings with russian operatives or russian intermediates with the trump campaign and the idea that i was part of a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between trump surrogates and intermediate aries is totally
false. that is the question that senator franken asked me and it got my attention because he noted it was the first, breaking news, and it got my attention and that was the question i responded to. i did not respond by referring to the two meetings one very brief after a speech. and one with two of my senior staffers professional staffers with the russian ambassador in washington. where no such things were discussed. and my reply to the question of senator franken was honest and correct and as i understood it at the time. i appreciate that some have taken the view that this was a false comments, that is not my intent and that is not correct. i will write the judiciary committee soon today or tomorrow. to explain this testimony for
the record. second, at my confirmation hearing i promised that i would do this -- if a specific matter arose where i believe my impartiality may reasonably be questioned i would consult with the ethics officials regarding the most appropriate way to proceed. close quotes -- that is what i told them at the confirmation hearing and i have been here just three weeks today. a lot has been happening in this three week period. i wish i had more of my staff on board but we are still waiting for confirmation for them. much has been done and much needs to be done but i did and have done as i promised. i met with senior officials shortly after arriving here.
re-evaluated the rules of ethics and recuseal, and considered the issues at stake. in fact, on monday of this week we set a meeting with a final decision on this question and we set that meeting today. so this was the day that we planned to have a final discussion about handling it. i asked for their candid and honest opinion about what i should do about investigations. certain investigations. and my staff recommended recuseal. they said that since i had involvement with the campaign, i should not be involved in any campaign investigation. i have studied the rules and considered their comments and evaluation. i believe those recommendations are right and just. there for i have recused myself
in the matters that deal with the trump campaign. the exact language of that recuseal is in the press release we will give to you. i have said this, quote, i have now decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigation of any matter relating in any way to the campaign for president of the united states. i went on to say this announcements should not be interpreted as the announcement of any investigation and suggestive of the scope of any subject of such an investigation, because we resist confirming or denying the very existence of investigation. so in the end i have followed the right procedure just as i promitiesed the committee i would. just as i believe any good
attorney general should do. and a proper decision i believe has reached. so i thank you for the opportunity to make those comments and would be pleased to take a few questions. okay -- >> just to clear up confusion over this. could you explain a little bit about the september 8th meeting who in your staff was there and what was discussed with the russian ambassador? >> the russian ambassador apparently sent a staffer to my office and i did not see him and asked for a meeting as so many ambassadors were doing. and we set up a time as we did. and we normally did. and we met with him. two of my senior staffers were there and maybe a younger staffer too. they both retired army colonels and not politicians and we
listened to the ambassador and what his concerns might be. -- just normal things such as i started off by saying, i don't remember a lot of it, but i remember saying i had gone to russia with a church group in 1991. >> and he said he was not a believer himself but was glad to have church people come there. indeed i thought he was pretty much of an old style soviet type ambassador. and so we talked about -- as i recall and some how the subject of the ukraine came up. i had the ukrainian ambassador in my office the day before to listen to him. russia had done nothing that was wrong in any area and everybody else was wrong with regard to
the ukraine, it got to be a testy conversation at that point. it wrapped up and he said something about inviting me to have lunch and i did not accept that. and that never occurred. >> i don't recall -- but most of these ambassadors -- and they like -- this was campaign season but i don't recall any specific political discussions -- >> do you recall meeting with the ambassador any other time? >> i don't recall having met him. it's possible. i'm on the armed services kp committee but i don't recall meeting him. >> do you think -- why do you think he sought the meeting he consider you a representative of
the trump campaign? >> they are always trying to advance their agenda. most of the ambassadors i met with would lay out their case. latvia and lithuania and hungary and australia and i met with all of those ambassadors over the years so i think that is why -- >> did you consult with the white house about your decision and to follow on the last question, with hindsight do you believe this is a coincidence that the russians asked you for a meeting or you were targeting that it came at the height of russia's interference and trump was giving an interview saying he didn't believe there was anything to the reporteded interference? >> i don't recall or have asens
ot sure when we set up the meeting what was going to be going on at the world at the time. and what the ambassador may have had in mind. you met with russn officials, since endorsing -- donald trump. >> i don't think so he we meet a lot of peo- >> from those two meetings you discussed with the ambassador -- >> i believe so -- >> the white house press secretary and president himself said you should not recuse yourself from the investigations -- or my staff has that i house intended to do this afternoon.
but i feel like -- because they don't know the rules, the ethics rules most people don't. but when you evaluate the i feel like that i should not be involved i campaign i had a in. one more question -- >> two questions if i may. one you your already considering recuseaay is that correct? and you answered senator's question were you not thinking of the meeting or did you not consider it relevant? >> i was taken aback a little bit by the brand new alligation that this surrogate, that i was called a surrogate for donald trump meeting continuously with russian officials and that struck me hard and that is what i focused my answer on.
and retrospect i should have slowed down and said but i did meet one russian official a couple of times that would be the ambassador. thank you all, take care. >> there you have it. attorney general jeff sessions will row cues himself from existing or future investigat n investigations related to the campaign for president of the united states. when he said that he did not know of any meetings between himself and russian officials, it was an exchange withal franken of minnesota. the senator said he was honest and correct -- >> we want to show you the exchange right. >> if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the trump campaign communicateded with the russian government during
the course of the campaign what will you do? >> i am not aware of any of those communications, i was called a surrogate and i did not have communication -- and i am unable to comment on it. >> he says he was not thinking in terms of meetings with operatives or intermediates i want to go to john -- in washington right now. the pressure is building all day -- >> we are interrupting our friends and colleagues in new york covering these vs out of washington, d.c. concerning the attorney general, jeff sessions, it's attorney general himself recusing himself from the trump white house and the campaign. >> his first big conference to the nation this being the topic and recusing himself. of course we'll continue to monitor this. we'll find the latest at 6abc.com.
