Stand Up Republic - "Sunlight" (calls for tRump/Russia select committee to investigate)

Appoint Preet Bharara as Special Prosecutor to investigate election influence by Russia (Petition)

https://www.change.org/p/appoint-preet-bharara-as-special-prosecutor-to-investigate-election-influence-by-russia

Preet Bharara is one of the most accomplished jurists in America, with a history of honest, non-partisan investigations and an ability to take on even the largest of cases. He’s led the charge against corruption in the New York State government, financial fraud on Wall Street, and international gang activity. He is respected by Democrats and Republicans alike and has extensive experience with international investigations, including in Russia.

Now that he is no longer the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Mr. Bharara is the perfect candidate to take on the task of investigating the role Russia played in the 2016 elections.

Rod Rosenstein is currently the U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland, and is expected to be confirmed as the Deputy Attorney General. Because Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from all future cases that involve Russia, Mr. Rosenstein will be responsible for leading any investigation into Russia’s actions. We ask Mr. Rosenstein to name Mr. Bharara as Special Prosecutor in charge of the investigation.

Election integrity is central to our survival as a democracy. This isn’t a Republican or a Democratic issue — this is an American issue. We as a nation demand an honest, non-partisan investigation, and Preet Bharara stands alone in his qualification to lead that inquiry.

Sessions committed perjury & broke Logan Act. Those are CRIMES. It's not recusal it's resignation.

Jeff Sessions said that people who commit perjury must be removed from office.

https://thinkprogress.org/jeff-sessions-said-that-people-who-commit-perjury-must-be-removed-from-office-135edbfb84d9#.ejq352j31

It now appears very likely that Sessions committed the very same crime he once voted to convict President Clinton of. The federal perjury statute forbids anyone who has “taken an oath before a competent tribunal, officer, or person” from “willfully and contrary to such oath” making a statement on “any material matter which he does not believe to be true.”

There is, to be fair, some wiggle room in this statute. To convict Sessions, for example, a prosecutor would have to prove that Sessions did not believe that his reportedly false statements about “the Russians” to be true. Thus, if Sessions had somehow forgotten about those meetings, that would provide him with a defense.

This is the sort of argument that Sessions’ defense attorneys could make on his behalf at trial. And Sessions, of course, should be afforded the same presumption of innocence that attaches to anyone accused of a crime.
