Cornyn supports President-elect Trump’s choice in Sessions

(Press Release) WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement Friday afternoon in response to media reports that U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has been chosen to be President-elect Donald Trump’s Attorney General:

“I commend the choice of Senator Sessions to lead the Justice Department under the new Republican Administration. A principled and good man, he will restore honor to a Department that, under President Obama, perpetually pushed a political agenda while neglecting to enforce the law. For nearly eight years the Justice Department has twisted the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress to further the President’s liberal agenda, eroding our liberty in the process. It has put politics ahead of national security, and demonized those who protect us. It’s time to end the politicization of the Justice Department and start defending the rule of law, and I’m confident that as our top law enforcement official Senator Sessions will do that.”
