U.S. President Donald Trump accused Democrats late Thursday of conducting a "witch hunt" against Attorney General Jeff Sessions over contacts with Russia, as the veteran senator recused himself from any probe into the election campaign.Unswayed by Sessions's account of events, top Democrats are maintaining their calls for him to step down immediately, accusing him of perjury.They also called for an independent prosecutor to investigate contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow, which US intelligence says interfered in the election to hurt Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.Adam Schiff, a Democratic ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, rejected Sessions's claim that his contacts with Kislyak were unrelated to his work with the Trump campaign as "simply not credible". According to officials, U.S. intelligence agencies and the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue to investigate just how and how much Moscow intruded into U.S. politics, and whether that effort -- which U.S. intelligence chiefs say was directed by President Vladimir Putin -- involved collusion with the Trump campaign.Speaking to Fox News Thursday evening, Sessions reiterated that he did not discuss the campaign with Kislyak.
