Petition Background

The Washington Post just revealed that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied under oath at his confirmation hearing about his own contact with Russian officials during the presidential campaign, when he was a foreign policy advisor to Trump.

During his confirmation hearing, when asked by Senator Al Franken “if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?," Sessions replied, “Senator Franken, I am not aware of those activities … I didn’t have – did not have communication with the Russians.”

The only way for Americans to be able to trust that our government can act with integrity -- to know that our top leaders aren't compromised by a foreign power, and to trust that the nation's top cop follows the law that he is duty-bound to enforce -- is for Attorney General Sessions to resign his post immediately and for his successor to appoint a special prosecutor to begin a comprehensive investigation of Donald Trump, his campaign, and his administration.

Anything short of that is flatly unacceptable and puts our country's security, our free and fair elections, and our justice system at grave risk.
