WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released the following statement regarding Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from investigations related to the presidential campaign:
“Attorney General Sessions has repeatedly said that he would recuse himself from cases as appropriate, and he has done so. General Sessions is a man of honor and integrity, and after having had the time to review the DOJ rules, he came to the reasonable conclusion to recuse himself from any current or future investigations related to the presidential campaign. Although not legally mandated, this decision puts the issue behind him and ensures that the Department's law enforcement will be free from even the appearance of impropriety.”
