ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions "lied under oath" and called for his resignation or removal from office. Pelosi said at a news conference on Thursday, "he has proved that he is unqualified and unfit to serve in that position of trust." Pelosi also said in a Twitter post: "We are far past recusal. Jeff #Sessions lied under oath. Anything less than resignation or removal from office is unacceptable." The Washington Post reported earlier that Sessions did not disclose two meetings he had with the Russian ambassador before President Donald Trump took office.
