AMHERST, Mass. — The former attorney general Jeff Sessions said on Wednesday that the special counsel’s report into Russian interference in the 2016 election “deserves respect” but contended that the country should move on.
“I think it’s about time to accept the results, and let’s get on with the business of America,” Mr. Sessions said in a speech at Amherst College.
While Congress has the power to oversee investigations of possible wrongdoing by the president, Mr. Sessions said he believed lawmakers should accept that the inquiry, led by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, found insufficient evidence to determine that President Trump or his associates engaged in a criminal conspiracy with Russia.
The public should rest assured that the investigative process worked as it was intended, Mr. Sessions said.
“The process was followed and a decision has now been rendered,” he said, adding that he had “the greatest confidence in the integrity of our system.”
Mr. Mueller’s report has offered a far more damaging portrait of the president than the findings delivered last month in a four-page letter released by Attorney General William P. Barr.
Some Democratic lawmakers have called for Mr. Trump’s impeachment based on Mr. Mueller’s report, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi has urged caution.
During his speech, Mr. Sessions, who served as a senator from Alabama before becoming attorney general, also defended his decision in March 2017 to recuse himself from the Russia inquiry. He announced weeks after his confirmation that he would remove himself after it was disclosed that he had failed to report contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States.
As a member of the Trump administration, Mr. Sessions said, he was a potential witness in the inquiry and therefore should not lead it. The decision drew the president’s ire, subjecting Mr. Sessions to months of public criticism and private humiliation.
Mr. Sessions resigned in November 2018 at Mr. Trump’s request.
The Amherst College Republicans invited Mr. Sessions to deliver the talk on Wednesday. It drew protests from students and faculty members at Amherst, as well as from nearby schools.
In the opening minutes of Mr. Sessions’s speech, about 50 attendees — more than a third of the audience — walked out of the campus chapel where the event was held. Many joined protesters outside, denouncing the policies he helped establish as attorney general as an attack on civil rights and saying that they targeted vulnerable groups.
In particular, the protesters singled out Mr. Sessions over his support for hard-line immigration tactics, like moving to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which shields young undocumented immigrants from deportation, and his backing of policies that remove Title IX statutes that would protect transgender students.
More than 100 demonstrators in total joined the protest, chanting slogans like “no justice, no peace” and “no racist beliefs.”
Huey Hewitt, a senior at Amherst and a member of the campus activist group that coordinated the protest, said it had a larger purpose. “It’s not just about Jeff Sessions, but about the policies that he’s come to uphold,” he said.
Mr. Sessions suggested that undergraduates should respect their peers’ decisions to invite speakers with a range of political views as a display of free speech. “I am concerned about the American values of free speech being eroded, particularly on college campuses,” he said.
And he said he believed conservative students in today’s political climate faced more disrespect than when he attended college. “My impression is college Republicans nationwide are having a harder time today,” he said.B:
