Attorney General Sessions will be testifying in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday.

We’re demanding that members of the subcommittees ask Jeff Sessions to explain his role in the recent firing of FBI Director James Comey, and any ongoing role he may have in overseeing – or trying to influence – the investigation of: Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, alleged Trump campaign collusion with Russia to commit criminal wrongdoing, and any attempts to interfere with the investigation.

On Tuesday, let’s pack the hearing room in the Senate to say loud and clear that no one – and certainly not our top law enforcement official – is above the law in the country.

WHERE: Hart Senate Office Building, Room 216
2nd St NE and C St NE, Washington, D.C.
WHEN: Tuesday, June 13, 2:30pm ET
(The hearing will start at 2:30pm, but aim to arrive by 2:00pm to secure seats.)

A few things to note:

– You can bring a small paper with a message on it to hold up during the hearing. However, please be advised that the committee chairman may ask you to take it down or to be escorted out by Capitol Police as a result.
– You may want to arrive early in order to secure a seat.
– Use public transportation if at all possible because parking near the U.S. Capitol grounds is very difficult to secure. More information is available here from the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center.
– Please note that all visitors to the Senate and House buildings must be screened by a magnetometer for security purposes before they can enter. For specific questions, you may contact the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center.

If the hearing room is too packed to accommodate everyone who shows up, that’s great news! We encourage you to then visit the offices of your Members of Congress and hand them the questions for Jeff Sessions that should be on their minds as they conduct their oversight of the Trump Administration: House and Senate letters detailing key areas for Congressional questioning of Sessions.
