On Wednesday night, the Washington Post broke a bombshell story that exposed Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his communication with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign. In response, the White House is coming to Sessions' defense.

Spicer on Sessions

During the election, speculation grew on an almost daily basis about the ties Russia had to the Donald Trump campaign. That speculation became confirmation when it was revealed that Russia had hacked into the Democratic National Committee with the goal of helping Trump become the new commander in chief.

Since then, both Kremlin officials and the White House have denied any wrongdoing, despite crippling information that has been released, including the aforementioned story over Jeff Sessions and his conversations with the ambassador to Russia. These issues were discussed with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer during the March 2 edition of "Fox and Friends" on Fox News.

Joining Fox News host Abby Huntsman was Sean Spicer, who quickly came to the defense of Jeff Sessions. "Sen. Sessions did his job," Spicer said, before adding, "He was 100% straight with the (Judiciary) committee.

When asked if Sessions should recuse himself, Spicer fired back, "There's nothing to recuse himself."

Not stopping there, Sean Spicer then shifted his focus to the Democrats, who he believes are using the latest story as a political tool against the White House.

"I think this is Democrats continuing to push a false narrative for political purposes," he said.

Sessions defense

On Thursday morning, reporters caught up with Jeff Sessions, who continued to deny any communication with Russia.

Sessions labeled the Washington Post story "false" and "unbelievable," which continues the same theme being pushed by the administration. Not long after Sessions' remarks to the press, the White House doubled down on Sean Spicer's comments, stating, "This is the latest attack against the Trump administration by partisan Democrats."

Moving forward

As questions continue to remain unanswered in regards to Donald Trump and his possible ties back to Russia, backlash has grown by the hour. Congressional Democrats have called for Jeff Sessions to resign as Attorney General for allegedly lying during his Senate confrontation hearing, which, if it happens, would mark the second cabinet member to do so. Last month, retired Gen. Michael Flynn was forced to step down after his communication with Russia was exposed to the public.
