CREDO released the statement below in response to Donald Trump's firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions

"Jeff Sessions' long history of racism and lying under oath would have disqualified him from serving as Attorney General under anyone but a racist liar like Donald Trump," CREDO Action Co-Director Heidi Hess said. "No one who cares equal justice under the law will be sad to see him leave the Justice Department," she said. "With that said, we're deeply concerned that Trump is again trying to interfere with the Trump-Russia investigation by forcing Sessions' resignation."

"Any interference with Robert Mueller's investigation would be a completely unacceptable," Hess continued. "CREDO will work to ensure that Mueller is able to complete a fair and thorough investigation without undue interference."
