Aderholt Statement on Jeff Sessions

March 2, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) today released the following statement in regard to allegations of improper meetings between then Senator Jeff Sessions and foreign diplomats.


“The unsubstantiated allegations about Russian coordination are becoming almost like the ‘birther’ issue of the Democratic party,” said Robert Aderholt.“  It is not at all unusual for members of Congress to speak with ambassadors from other countries on an almost weekly basis.  The fact of the matter is that Jeff Sessions is an American patriot who would not do anything to jeopardize the sanctity and security of the country he not only has served for decades, but a country he deeply loves.


“These allegations are nothing more than a partisan smoke screen to detract from the fact Donald Trump won the election fair and square.  It is like some of the Democrats counted their chickens before they were hatched and now have egg on their faces.”


In Washington, Congressman Aderholt serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee; he is also a member of the Committee’s Defense Subcommittee, the Committee’s Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee, and the Helsinki Commission.
