Nov. 18, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as Attorney General:
“President-elect Donald Trump has made a strong statement that our Justice Department will return to following the rule of law through his appointment of Senator Jeff Sessions to serve as the Attorney General. While soft-spoken, Senator Sessions has the steel-willed determination to restore DOJ from its current corrupted partisanship by putting the blindfold back on Lady Justice as he enforces the law. Sessions will also help remove the stain of an Obama Justice Department that views itself more as political activists than neutral arbiters as has been witnessed by their legal war on local police and their failure to enforce immigration laws. The only potential down-side of Senator Jeff Sessions’ appointment is that when confirmed, the Senate will lose one of its great leaders who has met every challenge with integrity and quiet strength.”
