#FightTrump This Week: Call on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Resign

Yesterday, news broke that while testifying to the Senate during his confirmation hearing, Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to disclose meetings he held with the Russian ambassador - even when specifically asked about his communications with the Russians during the campaign.


As Attorney General, Jeff Sessions is supposed to oversee the FBI, which is charged with investigating domestic terrorism. He’s also the leader for all Federal prosecutors around the country, who ask citizens every day to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Sessions can’t be trusted to do either.

 


Republican leaders are calling for Sessions to recuse himself from further Russian investigations. That’s not enough. Sessions must go.


Today - right now - join Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer by demanding that Sessions resign. Start by calling your elected officials and encouraging them to call for the resignation of Sessions. Instructions and script below.


Call your Representatives and ask them to call for Sessions’ resignation.

(1) Find your Representatives

(2) Call them, using the following script:
 

“Hello, my name is [X] from [CITY] and I am a constituent of [REPRESENTATIVE]. I am deeply disturbed and concerned that Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to disclose his meetings with the Russian ambassador while under oath during his confirmation hearing. We have seen too much deceit from the Trump Administration about their ties with the Russians. The Attorney General is charged with overseeing the FBI - the very agency responsible for investigating domestic terrorism. And to have an Attorney General who lies under oath sets a terrible example for our country. Sessions must go. Will [your Representative or Senator] call on Sessions to resign?”
