'Attorney General Jeff Sessions should resign' - Senator Chuck Schumer

Pressure is growing on a top US law official to step down, after it emerged he met the Russian ambassador twice during Donald Trump's election campaign.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions had told his confirmation hearing he did not have any "communications" with Russians at that time.

At a news conference in Washington, US Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called on him to resign.
