Attorney General Sessions raising his right hand and swearing to tell the truth

Victory! Demand a special prosecutor on Sessions and Russia

Update (5/17/17): Robert S. Mueller III has been appointed as a special prosecutor to investigate connections between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Now we need to call on Congress for a Select Committee so that this investigation can happen with public transparency.


Our attorney general may have committed perjury and a foreign government may have interfered in our democracy.

The American people need answers about Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential campaign – and what role Attorney General Jeff Sessions may have played.

That’s why the ACLU is calling on Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente, the official in charge of this investigation, to appoint a special prosecutor.

Following revelations that Sessions didn’t tell the whole truth at his confirmation hearing about his contact with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign, Sessions recused himself from leading the investigation into Russian involvement – passing that responsibility to Boente.

But recusal isn’t enough – only an independent special prosecutor can ensure a full investigation free of partisan politics and conflicts of interest, the kind of investigation the American people deserve.

Add your name now to demand that Boente appoint a special prosecutor – because no one is above the law in America, no matter their political connections.
