November 13, 2017 – This week, the House Committee on the Judiciary will hear testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. As the nation’s leading legal officer and as former chairman of the National Security Advisory Committee for the Trump Campaign, the Attorney General is in a unique position to advance public understanding of issues emerging in the ongoing inquiries into Russian interference in the 2016 election. In light of the upcoming Judiciary Committee hearing, the ACS-CREW Presidential Investigation Education Project compiled a list of key questions for the Attorney General.
The Presidential Investigation Education Project is a joint initiative by the American Constitution Society (ACS) and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to promote informed public evaluation of the investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and others into Russian interference in the 2016 election and related matters. This effort includes developing and disseminating legal analysis of key issues that emerge as the inquiries unfold, and connecting members of the media and public to with ACS and CREW experts and other legal scholars who are writing on these matters.
