Petition Background

Attorney General Jeff Sessions had two conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the presidential campaign season last year. When asked at his confirmation hearing, what he would do if "anyone affiliated" with the campaign had been in contact with the Russian government, Sessions answered that he had not had communication with the Russians.

In the words of Jeff Sessions himself, circa Nov. 2016, "Because of our grave concern for integrity in government we ask for a special counsel... When a high public official is accused of serious wrongdoing and there is a sufficient factual predicate to investigate, it is imperative the investigation be thorough, with dispatch and without partisanship." We agree, Mr. Sessions.
