Jeff Sessions, US President Donald Trump's attorney general, is under increasing pressure to resign after the Washington Post reported that he met the Russian ambassador twice during the election campaign.

Sessions failed to disclose his encounters with Sergei Kislyak during his confirmation hearing.

Sessions says he has done nothing wrong, but Democrats are calling on him to quit.
