  1. Jeff Sessions:

    It is the policy of the Department of Justice that those who have recused themselves not state the details of [the recusal] or confirm the existence of an investigation, or the scope or nature of the investigation, so, I feel like by following the rules of the Department, which I am teaching all of our people to do, I cannot answer that question.

  2. Trey Gowdy:

    I think what the president is doing is expressing frustration that Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions should have shared these reasons for recusal before he took the job, not afterward, if I were the president and I picked someone to be the country’s chief law enforcement officer, and they told me later, ‘Oh, by the way, I’m not going to be able to participate on the most important case in the office,’ I would be frustrated too.

  3. Bill Wehrum:

    I have gotten three different interpretations, and what I don't want to do is sign a recusal letter and then have the rules change again.

  4. Jeff Sessions:

    The best answer for me is that I should not announce that. Recusals are not made public, but internally binding, i can assure you I have not violated my recusal.

  5. Jeff Sessions:

    Sen. Leahy, I am honoring the recusal in every case, in every matter that comes before the Department of Justice. I have honored that, and will continue to honor that.
