In a beautiful display of resistance, an image of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions wearing a KKK costume along with various hashtags was projected on the Department of Justice headquarters and the FBI building in Washington, D.C., Thursday night.
USA Today reported Robin Bell took credit for the images and the hashtags — #SESSIONSMUSTGO, #WeNeedToSeeTheMemo, and #fireSessions — that showed up on the Pennsylvania Avenue buildings between the White House and the U.S. Capitol.

The memo Bell is referring to is reportedly written by former FBI Director James Comey and reveals that at a February meeting in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump asked Comey to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his ties to Russia. Shortly after the meeting, Comey documented the details of Trump’s request in a memo, which he later shared with senior FBI officials and close associates. The details of the memo were released by the New York Times on Tuesday.

Bell has also targeted Donald Trump as well. On Monday night, “Pay bribes here” and “Emoluments welcome” were projected on the Trump International Hotel, just a few blocks down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Department of Justice.

Bell is a filmmaker and artist who told CNN he projected on the hotel to draw attention to the accusations that foreign leaders can gain access to the president by paying to stay at the Trump property in the nation’s capital.
Bell said he has projected images on the Trump International Hotel 5 times, and he has no plans of stopping.
