One of the biggest stories surrounding the 2016 presidential election has been what impact Russia had in helping Donald Trump make it to the White House. The latest bombshell involves Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the communication he reportedly had with the Kremlin during the campaign.

MSNBC on Sessions

Through his entire campaign for president, Donald Trump made it a habit to attack anyone who was critical of his candidacy. From political opponents, to celebrities, members of the media, or even other world leaders, the former host of "The Apprentice" didn't hold back his thoughts.

The lone exception to that rule comes in the form of Russian President Vladimir Putin, which only adds to the speculation that Trump has some type of link back to Russia. Trump has denied any wrongdoing, but refuses to debunk the allegations by releasing his tax returns, as well as dealing with several members of his campaign and cabinet being caught with ties to the country. After it was revealed that Jeff Sessions spoke to the Russian ambassador twice during the election, the host of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC had a few words, which was reported on March 2.

Just hours after the Washington Post broke the story in question, Jeff Sessions addressed the issue when pressed by reporters. "I have not met with any Russians at any time to discuss any political campaign," Sessions said, referring to the story at "unbelievable" and "false."

In response, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough ripped into Jeff Sessions for allegedly lying about the communication.

"What does it say when you lie about something that you don’t have to lie about," Scarborough wondered. "There is a multiplying effect, when you have your National Security Adviser lying and having to resign. And then you have your attorney general lying in front of Congress over something he shouldn’t have to lie about," Scarborough continued, before adding, "Why lie about it?

Backlash continues

In response to the news, Democratic members of Congress have not held back. Led by House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Democrats are now calling for Jeff Sessions to either recuse himself, or resign as the attorney general of the United States for allegedly lying during his Senate confirmation hearing.
