Stop Obstruction of Trump-Russia Investigation With Independent Prosecutor

Target: Jeff Sessions, Attorney General

Goal: Ensure an independent special prosecutor is appointed to carry out investigation into connections between Trump administration and Russia.

The Trump Administration has obstructed an investigation into its ties with Russia.

A primary reason for the continued suspicion of collusion is the direct connection between former Trump campaign associates and the Kremlin. Former campaign manager Paul Manafort, was paid millions in consulting fees by a Russian backed political opposition party in the Ukraine. National Security Advisor Mike Flynn was fired after misleading the Vice President regarding communications he had with a Russian official regarding sanctions prior to the inauguration. He also received a $33,000 appearance fee from the state-sponsored Russian television outlet RT.

Since its initiation, the congressional inquiry has been hampered by partisanship and interference from the Executive Branch. Republican House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes was forced to recuse himself from leading the investigation after committing an ethics violation in revealing classified information to the Trump Administration. Prior to being removed from her position, acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned the administration that Mike Flynn had been compromised by the Russians. President Trump ignored those concerns and Flynn remained in his post for 18 more days.

The firing of FBI Director James Comey after he requested additional resources for the Russian investigation and testified before Congress represents an egregious example of executive obstruction. Despite attempts by the Trump Administration to cast the dismissal as resulting from Comey’s handling of the Clinton e-mail investigation, its timing and the fact that President Trump previously praised the director for that very inquiry, calls into serious question the true motive behind his removal. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have called for appointment of an independent special prosecutor to complete the investigation.

It is clear that an independent investigator who cannot be removed by President Trump is needed to ensure neutrality in the Russia inquiry. Please sign the below petition demanding the Justice Department carry out the appointment of a special prosecutor, and that the American people get the open and unbiased investigation they deserve.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Sessions,

I am writing to demand that the Justice Department appoint a special prosecutor to complete the Russia investigation. The dismissal of FBI director Comey confirmed that a neutral inquiry is no longer possible if carried out by individuals who may be removed by President Trump.

The American people deserve an investigation free from partisanship and executive obstruction.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. trump is such a secret abd sneeky lier!

    • NO EVIDENCE of such crap!

      • From the rest of the world to the USA. We love Trump !!!
        We have never had so many laughs at your expense. He is such a bombastic idiot – we can’t understand how he ever got into power. Guess, unfortunately, it just shows that America is now run by the red-necks even if they didn’t have the majority of votes.
        I would cringe in embarrassment if Trump was our president.
        Must check what Trump has tweeted today. Due for my latest round of laughs.
        So sorry for those who didn’t vote for Trump – now you have to put up with him making a mockery out of politics.

    • Well guess its a good thing Hillary lost since she is 10 times the liar he is. You must be relieved.

      • Evidence? Faux News talking points don’t count. Only bipartisan news sources, if you can find any. Just curious how old you are.

        • Anne Onymous says:

          Bi-partisan news. Ain’t no such animal. Faux News? How about the Clinton News Network / CNN?

      • Hey – if you think things are better because Clinton isn’t in there –
        Great! Why keep bringing it up? She lost, we all need to move forward and deal with the situation we are in now.

    • That’s what I have been telling everyone but no would listen instead I was called all kind of names. Im an American citizen. But the. Because I don’t like are care for that sick man im told to take pills and die

    • Your an Idiot plain and simple you believe all the bs and main stream media bs that the Democrats put out about Trump and its all lies your just plain to simple minded.

  2. Kathryn Irby says:

    Stop covering up Trump’s crooked dealings with Russia!!! When you cover up, you have something to hide!!! Stop It NOW!

    • There is NO evidence – can you people not hear!!!!??? It’s been said by many people there!!!! Smh!!!

      • I agree but some people can’t see pass their noses! There’s absolutely no proof of collusion! How many times does this have to be said?! Besides that, just because the crook was fired doesn’t mean the investigation is going to stop! But I believe Trump, Obama just wanted to catch the Trump administration. He’s a sore loser, he wanted things in the administration to stay the same & continue. That way he could keep us poor & his friends to continue making money.

        • Again, show me evidence that is not Faux News talking points. Breitbart and InfoWars are off the table, too. You keep saying there is no proof. Kind of like #44.5 insists he really didn’t say something, but he heard it from many people. Who? Anyone who thinks the Orange Ferret is looking out for anyone besides himself and his “drain the swamp buddies” is delusional. Have you seen his budget plan? What about healthcare? I sure hope you don’t have pre-existing conditions. You may as well resign yourself to no or next to no care. Delusional.

    • Give up the Russia BS already. There is nothing that support Russia did anything to change the election. If you want to know why Hillary lost…it was her cover ups and crooked dealings. Face that fact and move on.

      • Yes, there is but there are people who won’t or can’t understand that. More talking points concerning Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Where are your sources? And you seem to have conveniently forgotten she received almost 3 million more votes than the illegitimate president. I’ll move on when you can time travel back to 2008 and change the hate and vitriol targeting President Obama and his family on a daily basis. I have, and will continue to, leave Barron out of this. That is so much more than the hate mongers did for Sasha and Malia. Where did you stand on that? Innocent?

        • Girl, you’re nothing but a liberal troll. Trump won, and as bad as he is, slick hillie would have been worse. She was selling access to OUR GOVERNMENT for her personal profit. And since she LOST you loony libs have been doing nothing but obstructing his efforts. If we had done the same thing to your liar in chief, the obumma, we would have had a civil war. I guess there is no such thing as a graceful liberal loser…just losers!!

          • Talk about a troll. I don’t agree with you but if you look, I didn’t insult you. Honestly, if that’s all you have to say, you don’t have much credibility. I’ll just address the most asinine comment in your post. Obstruction and lies filled the 8 years of President Obama’s presidency. That’s over and above the hate and bigotry thrown at every member of his family, including children. I’m not a girl, by the way. I am a woman. You are absolutely right about me not being graceful. It has nothing to do with my politics, however, I’m just kind of klutzy. This loser, who isn’t, wishes you well.

          • Anne Onymous says:

            I hope there is a good healthcare replacement for OmabaCare – these liberals need that, as long as it includes mental health coverage.

        • Bull shit. That your opinion. Trump is a thief cork and a lier. Cause if he wasn’t. Then why is he firing all the people that can prove that he. Lieing to all the American. People

    • There is no evidence of collusion. As long as they have been investigating this, someone would have already leaked it to the media.

      NO ONE IS OBSTRUCTING THE INVESTIGATION. The Democrats wanted Coney fired, Pres Trump obliges them and now they are fit to be tied. Make up your mibds, you can’t have it both ways.

    • Gillian Miller Gillian Miller says:

      Trump’s crooked dealing with Russia is fake news which any vaguely intelligent person would know because it was started by Hilliar Clinton because she couldn’t believe she lost. Hilliar is a perjurer as well as a criminal. Her husband and Lynch perverted the course of justice. Hilliar committed treason by selling enriched uranium to the Russians (hence the association) and laundered the money through her fake foundation. In fact, Hilliar sending highly confidential and classified information though a private server allowed the Russians, and other foreign governments, to hack her. This material ended up on Abedin’s laptop as well as her husband’s. Anyone else would have been imprisoned but Hilliar got off scott free, disgusting.

      So, I want to see an investigation into HER dealings with the Russians along with all of the other criminal actions and all of them to be in prison for life where they belong.

    • Really? But Hillary had nothing to cover up or Hide when she deleted over 30,000 emails that she should of never even had to begin with but she has nothing to hide huh? “MORON”

  3. Someone should take Trump out – you know what I mean.

    To the American people – grow a brain cell. Create anarchy and keep it going until you have a revolution. Get rid of Trump, the Republicans, the Electoral College etc. and start again.

    Petitions and moaning on the internet is going to do FA.

    • You have no clue!!!!

      • Pamela, oh yes we do. Just because many many people round the world have been able to see what Trump is and that so many Americans have been blind-sided by this joke of a president.
        If only Americans were more aware and could see how the rest of world views what is happening over there.
        Your country is turning into a mess and politics is ruled by those who have money. You do not have democracy at all.
        I live in one of the least corrupted countries in the world, and we do not have money in politics.
        Help us all if we end up being like America.
        You ARE NOT the country that everyone wants to emulate. You seem to think you are, but believe me, we all feel so sorry for you…. well at least for the ones that didn’t vote for Trump. The ones who did, you get what you deserve.
        America is an example to us of what we do NOT want to be like.

    • Not the brightest bulb are you?

    • BINAP, Disgusting comment, inciting violence against another human.

      Fine, you don’t like the man, that’s your prerogative, but to suggest “someone take him out” is dangerous trash talk.

  4. so far, 0 evidence on this. there was so much on Hillary Clinton though….

    • Exactly – such bs crap… they have nothing better to do. How many times does Clapper, and anyone there that has said it on at least 5x – NO EVIdENCe!!!! Comet had to go and these folks and petition is snowflake material.

    • Your right, John, there absolutely was once we got the clinton power out of the way. And last week the queen herself, pelosi, said that there was not a shred of evidence tying trump to the russians. But the loony liberals won’t give it up and are stifling government in America with the resistance and riots and such! Oh, and BinaP, bring it on, after all it’s us conservatives that own the firepower in this country!

      • Ha ha ha ha ha. Just because you keep saying it, it isn’t so. Please, show me some real proof, not repeated accusations. When you do, I’ll accede.

        Frank, hope things are going well for you. Again, sincere thanks for your help to those in need.

        • Thanks, Margaret. Yes, we’ve been somewhat busy in the county this week with a fatality of a nurse Monday…but our neck of the woods has been sort of quiet fortunately.

          • Hi Frank, Glad to hear that. Hope things continue that way. I’m sure you are making a huge difference in people’s lives and I thank you. I’m sure they do, too.

      • You damn right im loony that’s cause trump is a fucking crook. Thief and a lier

  5. Mr. Sessions, recusing yourself from this investigation, and then having an active hand in firing the FBI Director who is in charge of the investigation looks mighty suspicious to me. It looks to me like you have allowed your base and profoundly un-American racism to eclipse your love of country. Prove me wrong or face the consequences for your treasonous actions.

    • Session had no hand in it… the deputy did and you clearly do not know the laws he follows as a standup nonpartisan position and person.., get a clue… you clearly did not read what the deputy put out there…

      You whiners are so ridiculous…

  6. This is BULlSHIT STUPID pettiton… you’ve now lost me and I will unsubscribe.

    • Evelyn Ball says:

      Good riddance. Go join the worthless piece of shit who obviously doesn’t give a damn about the environment and wildlife. Hopefully all the idiots who voted for the bastard end up paying the price.

      • You supported a candidate who stole her party’s nomination from the rightful winner?

        • You are delusional. Go back and check your sources. A staffer theorized about ways to discredit an opponent. It was never implemented. There is something called an opposition report that ALL candidates gather. Even, and probably more so, the new Orange King. As far as Senator Sanders, the carrot ferret had not set his sights on him yet. I guarantee he would have ripped him to shreds. Just so you know, I almost supported Bernie. I strongly agreed with his policies that you casually voted against. You don’t get to come back now and defend him. Very hypocritical. Sad! Realism won out, though. Had he won, he was an Independent during his career and had not fostered connections. That alone would sink his presidency. Hillary was not my second choice. She was, and is, my first choice. Keep throwing sh*t at the wall, and some of it will stick. I’m not sure how old you are, but I’ve been watching that strategy for decades. Some of us are too smart to believe it. Obviously, it fooled less than 63 million voters. That means, as you conveniently refuse to acknowledge, almost 66 million voters chose Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Think about that for a while. Smug. So sad.

      • ForceChange, anti Trump petitions are worthless. Most are full of emotion, lacking facts. The creators seldom dig deep or research for the truth.

        The only petitions I will sign are for animal welfare causes created by responsible rescue and animal welfare groups.

    • Wilf L Conduct says:

      Pamela, you have made 5 posts since saying that you would unsubscribe.
      The timing of James Comey’s (not Comet, as you misspelt it) firing is going to be viewed suspiciously by the majority (rightly or wrongly). An independent and unbiased investigation will settle things and that’s what this petition is about. Evidence can only be gathered when an investigator is free to do his or her job unfettered by anyone else.

    • Looks like the whiner, you, don’t understand recusal. Absolutely no influence in the investigation. Advising you know who, to fire Comey is influencing the investigation. Stand up, non-partisan person in the position of Attorney General is the antithesis of Jefferson Beauregard Sessions. In 1986, even the Republicans denied him a judgeship. Please, don’t try to tell me he changed. Current behavior indicates he hasn’t.

    • Great. You won’t be missed.

  7. Can you wacko liberals get a life. Let the man do the job he was elected to do. He won..stop the whining and move on. Geez. The Dem’s wanted Comey fired…He’s fired…Now your up in arms. Do you even realize how silly you all sound. Stop for one minute being hypocrites and make up your minds.

    • He doesn’t have a clue how to do the job he was elected for. He is the most inept, inexperienced, dangerous president in our history. Russia, Comey, and voter suppression, still left him almost 3 million votes short of Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. When it comes to the safety and security of OUR country, Russian influence is of major importance, regardless of party. Hypocrites say one thing and do another. Sounds like our so called leader.

  8. Trish Ryan says:

    An investigation into Hillary Clinton ties to Russia and the Uranium she sold to them. Also, the pedophile linked to her had dealings with Russia. Where is that investigation?

    • Ha ha ha ha ha! Check out the uranium deal. Check out the pedophile story. Both have been debunked. Alex Jones, leading conspiracy theorist, started the Pizzagate fiasco. Even he has said it isn’t true. Instead, a zealot shot a gun in the pizza place. It was then discovered the ring operating in the basement couldn’t have been. There was no basement.

      In the future, there is this really good website called snopes.com that can help you determine what is truth and what is a lie. All you have to do is use it.

      • Anne Onymous says:

        Ummm ahh … it WAS Hillary that put together a uranium deal. Or didn’t you know that? Or can’t you see that?

        https://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/24/us/cash-flowed-to-clinton-foundation-as-russians-pressed-for-control-of-uranium-company.html

        Debunked – or swept under the carpet – again.

        • Anne Onymous, too clever. I like it. Believe it or not, there are liberals who can actually do research. This is from PolitiFact, a non-partisan fact checker. There is more if you care to look it up.

          We counted six things Trump said that are inaccurate, exaggerated or taken out of context. Let’s break down his claims.

          Most of the donations occurred before Hillary Clinton could have known she would become secretary of state. And again, the secretary of state was one of nine agency heads that had input into the final decision, which ultimately lay with President Barack Obama.

          Is that what you mean by debunked or covered up? If she didn’t orchestrate it, she didn’t orchestrate it. You are giving her much more power than she had.

          If you want another source that isn’t partisan, check out snopes.com. There are a lot of interesting things in there. I even use it to refute nonsense about #45. Pretty useful.

        • I just read the article. Believe it or not, I do know how to read. Here’s a direct quote that contradicts the assertion that Hillary made the deal.

          With implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

          In addition:

          Some of the connections between Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation were unearthed by Peter Schweizer, a former fellow at the right-leaning Hoover Institution and author of the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash.” Mr. Schweizer provided a preview of material in the book to The Times, which scrutinized his information and built upon it with its own reporting.

          The problem with Clinton Cash is that it has proven to be false. The author is from the Hoover Foundation, surprise, a right-leaning organization. Check it out, although my guess is that information has been swept under the carpet. That would be again.

  9. When are people going to stop with this “Russian” crap. I am sick to death of it. Even Comey, before he got fired, said there was no evidence at all.

    • The libs and the leftist media cannot afford to let the story die. Without it, they have to admit the Dems ran a terrible candidate who ran an even worse campaign.

      • I guess you are conveniently forgetting the almost 3 million voters who cast their votes for Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. That would be despite Russia, Comey, decades of lies, voter suppression, and gerrymandering. I know, none of that was real. Have a nice day.

  10. When the investigation is over, whether he is guilty or not. I’m betting guilty but I’ll admit I’m getting ahead of myself.

    If you’re sick to death of the crap, you don’t have to follow it.

    And, no, Comey did not say there was no evidence. That he asked for additional funds and manpower to continue the investigation is definitely indicative that something was afoot.

    Have a nice day!

    • Anne Onymous says:

      Just because Comey is gone, that does not mean any legitimate investigation won’t continue. Good grief, Comey was the head of the FBI, and had many people working under him. They’ll continue the witchhunt.

      Heck, Comey spent 10 minutes laying out the evidence in Hillary’s investigation, and then, at the end of this speech, said no charges will be filed. WTF!
      It’s NOT the FBI’s place to say if charges are brought – that is the DOJ’s say. And we ALL know, after the little tarmac talk between Billy and Loretta Lynch, THAT was never going to happen.

      So, who’s really got their heads in the sand?

      • I would say you may. A matter of national security is not a witch hunt. I thought we libtards were the only ones who didn’t know that. Do you watch the news? McConnell has nixed an independent investigation, so no, I’d say someone is afraid of what might be found. And the only way it will continue is if the public fights for it.

        Let’s talk emails now. Are you aware Bush/Cheney destroyed over 2 million emails concerning the war in Iraq after they were subpoenaed to hide their unlawful war? Of course not. They are Republican so there was no investigation to bring it to the world’s attention. Investigation after investigation after investigation found Hillary was careless, not criminal. Check it out. Do you know how many Congresspeople uses private, unsecured phones to conduct, official, classified business? Most of them including Chaffetz, you know the guy leading the charge. And let’s not forget our VP who was hacked on an unsecured device while governor of Indiana. My, it doesn’t look like emails are a problem unless they’re Hillary’s. Strange.

        Finally, you have no idea what that conversation was. Neither do I. We do, however have ample evidence of multiple contacts, if not collusion, with Russia. Wouldn’t you like to get to the truth, either way? I would.

    • The DoJ has debunked the claim Coney asked for more money and manpower. The NYT story citing “unnamed officials” does not make it fact.

      • *Comey.

      • Are we talking about the same article? Here’s what the NYT said.

        According to the congressional officials, the Senate Intelligence Committee learned of Mr. Comey’s request on Monday when Senators Burr and Warner asked the F.B.I. director to meet with them. They wanted him to accelerate the bureau’s investigation so they could press forward with theirs. Congressional investigators do not have the authority to collect intelligence that agencies like the F.B.I. and the C.I.A. possess.

        More info.

        At the meeting with the senators, Mr. Comey said he had made the request because he believed the Justice Department had not dedicated enough resources to the investigation, a fact partly stemming from the unusual situation under which the inquiry was being run. Until two weeks ago, when Mr. Rosenstein took over as deputy attorney general, the investigation was being overseen by Dana Boente, who was acting as the deputy and had limited power.

        This seems to be confirming, not debunking, the request for more money and resources. Did you really read the same article?

  11. Oh for crying out loud people get your brains out of your ass….Trump is a danger to this nation…..he is an insecure lunatic….and liar…..who only thinks of himself…..his motto is…”pee in their faces and tell them it’s rain and they will eventually believe it.” “They’re so incredibly easy.”
