Portman says Sessions did the right thing in recusing himself from Russia investigation

WASHINGTON (WCMH) — Ohio Senator Rob Portman says Attorney General Jeff Sessions “did the right thing” when he decided to recuse himself from an investigation into Russian interference in the US presidential election.

“His decision to recuse himself will enhance the credibility of the investigation into Russia’s attempts to meddle in the election,” Portman said Thursday.

Portman was one of several senators from both sides who asked Sessions to remove himself from the investigation.
