"Sessions said he’d recuse himself from anything to do with Russia. It’s clear he did not. Calling for him to resign (again)," Wyden tweeted.

Sessions in early March recused himself from any investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election after bipartisan pressure over his contacts with Moscow’s U.S. envoy during the campaign. 

Sessions denied he intentionally misled senators when he told them at his confirmation hearings that he did not communicate with Russian officials during the campaign. 

Wyden said at the time that recusal was not enough, advocating for a special investigator into Russia's election interference and Trump-Moscow links.

Trump on Tuesday fired Comey, citing letters by Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein recommending his firing and questioning his judgment.

House and Senate intelligence committees and the FBI are investigating Trump's links to Russia.
