Over 2000 Lawyers ask Senator Jeff Sessions be Disbarred
Almost 2,000 attorneys from across the US have signed on to a complaint addressed to the Alabama State Bar Disciplinary Committee asking that Attorney General Jeff Session be disbarred from the Alabama State Bar.
The complaint, filed by the Lawyers for Good Government, alleges that Sessions should be disbarred for violating professional conduct standards in the Alabama Rules of Professional Conduct. The allegations stem from Sessions testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Senate confirmation for US Attorney General.
The complaint states that Sessions behaved dishonestly and deceitfully when he testified that he did not have communications with the Russians.
Earlier this month, revelations surfaced that Sessions had contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States. The ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, and Sessions met twice during the peak of the 2016 presidential race when Sessions was serving as a surrogate for then-candidate Donald Trumps presidential campaign.
