President Trump deserves a ton of credit for picking Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General. Conservatives blasted both Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch for too often considering the politics of a situation that they let down the rule of law.
As President Trump himself noted on Twitter over Labor Day, Jeff Sessions has refused to consider the political implications in indicting two Republican members of Congress in the run up to the midterms. If this were the Obama Administration, we cannot be sure his Attorney General would have done the same.
But Jeff Sessions has risen to the occasion and shown that an Attorney General should never consider the politics of an action, but instead consider the rule of law. He is your pick, Mr. President, and we are better as a nation because of it.
Thank you for putting in place an Attorney General who puts the rule of law first.
