BREAKING - 45's Ties to Russia

Today's big news is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from any investigation into Russia's interference with the 2016 presidential election. Yesterday, the news broke that Sessions met with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. twice last year, but he did not disclose these meetings during his confirmation hearing. Many Democrats in Congress are now calling for Sessions to resign as Attorney General due to the fact that he lied under oath on the Senate floor. Here's how you can help ensure that Sessions steps down and an independent commission is formed to investigate 45's ties to Russia.
