Former Texas congressman Pete Sessions linked to Ukraine scandal

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – Former Republican Rep. Pete Sessions’ road back to Congress was already off to a rough start even before a federal indictment appearing to link him to a campaign finance scheme and the Ukraine scandal at the heart of the impeachment inquiry. Sessions spent 22 years in Congress but lost his seat in Dallas last year. Last week Sessions announced an attempted comeback by running for a Texas Congressional seat being vacated by GOP Representative Bill Flores. But his path got further complicated Thursday when two men with apparent ties to Sessions and linked to the Ukraine scandal were arrested while trying to leave the country, and charged with federal campaign finance violations.
