It’s the Attorney General’s job to hold the President accountable, and refuse to defend unconstitutional or unlawful actions. We need to know if Jeff Sessions is up to that challenge -- and the Judiciary Committee can’t vote on him until we do.
This is the first of what appears to be several legal controversies the Trump Administration will have to deal with, and the people have a right to hear directly from Sen. Sessions about how he would handle them as Attorney General -- before the Senate confirms him.
The first major step towards confirming Sessions was just pushed back to tomorrow morning -- so EVERY senator needs to hear from us in the next 16 hours. Before the full Senate votes on Jeff Sessions, we need more answers!
I'm calling to ask you to oppose the nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.
Before the full Senate votes on Jeff Sessions, it must hold a full hearing on how he would handle Trump's executive overreach as Attorney General.
The Trump administration's firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates shows how vital it is that our next Attorney General will be willing to stand up to this President.
This is the worst possible time to rush through the process of confirming our nation’s top law enforcement official.
If your senator is already on our side, tell them to speak up louder, and use the full 30 hours of Senate debate to expose Sessions’ record of hostility to voting rights. And if your senator says they support Sessions, tell them how that makes you feel as their constituent. Please call 877-959-6082 now.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Common Cause.
