Senator Jeff Sessions has just been confirmed by the U.S. Senate as Attorney General of the United States.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions will make an exceptional Attorney General.
His understanding and commitment to the rule of law is extraordinary and badly needed in the Department of Justice – the chief enforcer of federal laws. His lifetime commitment to preserving the constitution and the rule of law is vital and no doubt will serve him well in this new position.

He’s the right man at the right time for this critical position in service to the United States.

Then a deceptive smear. And finally an all-out assault intended to hinder and even remove from office senior...
This is a bureaucratic coup d'état. Acting Attorney General Sally Yates – a holdover from the Obama Administration – has just ordered the Department of Justice not to defend President Trump’s Executive order on securing America. Disappointed bureaucrats don’t get to pick and choose what Executive...
Tomorrow, the Senate Committee on the Judiciary is set to begin its confirmation hearings on Senator Jeff Sessions’ appointment to serve as the next Attorney General for the United States. The Attorney General is arguably a President’s most important Cabinet position. It is critical that the next...
