Appoint Sally Yates as Special Prosecutor

The evidence of Russian manipulation in the 2016 campaign has become a hot button issue. There is proof that multiple members of the Trump team, including Trump himself, had contact with Russian officials before Trumps inauguration, and undermined the Obama administration by discussing sanctions.  The American people want and deserve a thorough investigation in The Trump campaign, transition and administrations contact with Russian officials. This will not be possible without the use of a special prosecutor. Republican officials are stonewalling the investigation and can't be trusted to remain unbiased. Republicans cannot be trusted to investigate themselves. As we have seen, Sally Yates is not afraid to follow the letter of the law, even when it goes against the presidents wishes. 

With AG Sessions recusing himself, congress has the power to appoint a special prosecuter. We need someone outside the Trump administration who had no role in the campaign and someone the American people will trust and believe. Having been nominated by Former President Obama and confirmed by the senate 84-12, she is respected by both political parties and in the U.S. Attorney's office she held leadership positions under both Republican and Democratic administrations.

We are asking that Congress appoint Sally Yates as Special Prosecutor for the investigations into the ties between Russia and the Trump team.
