All 11 members of the Bay State’s congressional delegation are calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s resignation, after the Washington Post reported Wednesday that the former Alabama senator met privately with the Russian ambassador twice, despite testifying to Congress that he “did not have communications with the Russians.”

Both Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, who voted against his Senate confirmation, as well as all nine members of the House have called on Sessions to resign after less than a month on the job.

In a Justice Department release, Sessions called the report “false,” and said his discussions with the Russian ambassador were limited to his role on the Senate Armed Services Committee. “I never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign,” he said. “I have no idea what this allegation is about.”
