This petition had 283 supporters
This petition demands that Jefferson B. “Jeff” Sessions, the US Attorney General, be disbarred from the practice of law in Alabama because he violated standards of professional conduct for Alabama lawyers holding public office. Mr. Sessions committed perjury (lying under oath) and engaged in dishonesty, deceit, misrepresentation, and serious interference with the administration of justice, all in violation of the Alabama State Bar’s Rules of Professional Conduct.
To be confirmed as Attorney General, Mr. Sessions testified in hearings held by the US Senate and answered questions from various US senators. In these hearings, he was sworn under oath to tell the truth, the whole truth. But he did not. His answers were untrue and incomplete. Mr. Sessions had numerous contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign when he was a member of the Trump campaign, but he swore that he had no contacts. By lying under oath, Mr. Sessions compromised the integrity of his role as head of the US Department of Justice and the American people can no longer trust him.
Lawyers for Good Government, a group of more than 130,000 lawyers nationwide, recently filed a formal ethics complaint with the Alabama State Bar. That complaint spells out all the facts regarding Mr. Sessions' misleading and unethical conduct during his confirmation.

Please support the ethics complaint and demand that the Alabama State Bar revoke Mr. Session’s license to practice law and impose any other appropriate penalty for his unprofessional and unethical behavior.
