Published On: February 08th, 2017

(ALEXANDRIA, VA.) – February 8, 2017: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) today released a statement applauding the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Jeff Sessions to be the next U.S. Attorney General.

“Finally, the United States will again have an attorney general that stands for all of the law—not just what he agrees with,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “General Sessions has an immense task before him. He will inherit a Department filled with employees that have dedicated their careers to prioritizing ideological advancement over equal enforcement of law. Despite this, I am wholly confident that Jeff Sessions is the right man for the job.”

The Public Interest Legal Foundation penned a letter of support for General Sessions’ nomination, promoting his record of prosecuting election crimes in the 1980s. The letter to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary can be read, here.
