The Alabama State Bar should investigate whether Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied under oath to the Senate, the American Civil Liberties Union said in an ethics complaint filed March 9.
The complaint alleges that Sessions made false statements when he testified to the Senate in January that he “did not have communications with the Russians” connected to the 2016 presidential election.
Sessions also lied in a written response to a question from Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) about such communications, the complaint alleges.
Sessions “met twice last year” with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., according to the Washington Post, the complaint said.
It’s professional misconduct for an attorney to “engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation,” the complaint said, quoting Rule 8.4(c) of the Alabama Rules of Professional Conduct.
Disputing claims of dishonesty, a spokesperson for Sessions said he “was asked during the hearing about communications between Russia and the Trump campaign—not about meetings he took as a senator,” according to a Bloomberg Politics report.
Christopher Anders filed the complaint on behalf of the ACLU.
