Tell Congress: Hold Jeff Sessions in Contempt


President Bill Clinton lied under oath about an adulterous affair. He was impeached for committing perjury. He lost his license to practice law in the State of New York. At the time, Republicans in Congress called for his resignation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied under oath in March about a meeting with the Russian Ambassador - and now it looks like he had three meetings with the Russian Ambassador and failed to disclose all of them. He also lied when he said he would recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation, yet then turned around and played a major role in firing FBI Director Comey in May.

And now at the very least he needs to be held in contempt for not answering questions before Congress in June.

Just like President Clinton, Sessions should face a Congressional investigation and a Special Prosecutor. Just like Clinton, Sessions should lose his license to practice law. And just like in Clinton's case, Republicans in Congress should call for Sessions to resign. If he won't resign and Trump won't fire him, then he needs to be impeached.

Jeff Sessions is supposed to be the nation's top law enforcement officer. There is video evidence that he committed perjury. Perjury is a violation of the law that Sessions is supposed to enforce. If no one is above the law, then Sessions must resign, be fired, or be impeached - and at the very least, he needs to be held in contempt.
