Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Thursday that he’s recusing himself from any existing or future probes related to any campaigns for president.

The announcement follows a report Wednesday night that Sessions had two meetings with the Russian ambassador to the US in 2016 after he started supporting Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Sessions said in a statement that he has been meeting with several “relevant senior career Department officials” over whether he should recuse himself.

Sessions was the first sitting Senator to endorse Trump back in February 2016.
