    WASHINGTON– Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he should not be involved in investigating a presidential campaign he had a role in.

    Sessions made the comment at a Thursday news conference where he announced he will recuse himself from any investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The move came after revelations that Sessions twice spoke to the Russia’s mbassador to the U.S. during the presidential campaign.

    Sessions rejected any suggestion that he tried to mislead anyone about his contacts with the Russian, saying, “That is not my intent. That is not correct.”

    But he says he “should have slowed down and said ‘but I did meet with one Russian official a couple of times.’ ”

    Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente will handle any matters related to investigation.
