 Al Franken reminds Jeff Sessions: ‘The ambassador from Russia is a Russian’

I'm proud to be from Minnesota right now, as my junior Senator leads the charge against the increasingly appalling and probably criminal Jefferson Beauregard Sessions. Besides getting off a pretty good deadpan quip on CNN, it was Franken who asked the question that led to Sessions' bald-faced and well-documented lie:

"At a confirmation hearing in January, Franken posed the following question to Sessions: “If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?”

“I'm not aware of any of those activities,” Sessions replied. “I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign, and I didn't have — did not have communications with the Russians.”

I just went to Al Franken's website and sent him an email thanking him for leading the charge and encouraging him to push for Sessions' resignation. I also went to Amy Klobuchar's website and sent her a similar message strongly encouraging her to do likewise. I used the subject line: "Jeff Sessions Should Resign" to make it easy for staffers to tally my message.
