“It is clear to me, and countless others, that the Trump administration has been comprised by their dealings with the Russian government. I do not believe U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has the credibility nor the moral authority to serve as our country’s top law enforcement official, and I call on him to be removed from his post immediately.

“My constituents and I continue to be alarmed by the Trump administration’s reluctance to be forthright about their connection to President Vladimir Putin’s regime. The American people demand and deserve unequivocal certainty about President Trump’s relationship with the Kremlin, including his financial ties and business dealings. If the president is unwilling to meet such concern with a transparent investigation conducted by a special prosecutor, I believe it would be appropriate for the House of Representatives to move forward with impeachment proceedings.”
