During his testimony Tuesday in front of the House Judiciary Committee, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was asked about the accusations swirling around fellow Alabaman Roy Moore, who is running to claim Sessions’ vacated Senate seat.
“I have no reason to doubt these young women,” Sessions told Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee in response to her question on Moore.
He also said that he was advised that the Attorney General’s office should stay out of the matter for now.
