Key Former Justice Dept. Officials Support Sessions

Sen. Jeff Sessions
Former U.S. Attorneys: His ‘Inviolable Promise To Treat All People Equally Under The Law’ Leave Us In ‘No Doubt That Senator Sessions Can Do The Job Well’

Former Assistant Attorneys General: ‘We Are Pleased To Endorse [Jeff Sessions’] Nomination And Do So Without Reservation

FORMER U.S. ATTORNEYS: ‘We, The Signatories Below, Are All Former United States Attorneys … Who Write To Support The Confirmation Of Senator Jeff Sessions As Attorney General Of The United States’

LETTER FROM 108 FORMER U.S. ATTORNEYS Who Have Served Under Every President Since Richard Nixon: “We, the signatories below, are all former United States Attorneys - serving under Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama - who write to support the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General of the United States.” (108 Former U.S. Attorneys, Letter To Sens. Grassley, Leahy, And Feinstein, 12/16/2016)

·         “As former U.S. Attorneys, we are in a unique position to evaluate the qualifications of Senator Sessions to serve as our nation’s Attorney General. . . Senator Sessions’ record reflects his priorities clearly, and none of his work as U.S. Attorney was more impactful than his sustained effort to eliminate segregation in rural Alabama and break the back of the Alabama Klan.” (108 Former U.S. Attorneys, Letter To Sens. Grassley, Leahy, And Feinstein, 12/16/2016)

·         “During his 41 years of public service, Senator Sessions has proved to be a leader of strong principles and firm beliefs. He also has proved to be a leader who appreciates positions that differ from his own and who learns from the scrutiny that comes with public life. His openness to different thinking and other worldviews is evidenced by the recent statements in support of his nomination from colleagues across the political spectrum...” (108 Former U.S. Attorneys, Letter To Sens. Grassley, Leahy, And Feinstein, 12/16/2016)

·         “As former U.S. Attorneys, we worked with and for many Attorneys General, each different, each with his or her own unique strengths. We have no doubt that Senator Sessions can do the job well, bringing to this critically important office his own unique and extraordinary strengths of courage, humility, experience, and an inviolable promise to treat all people equally under the law. We strongly urge you to support his confirmation.” (108 Former U.S. Attorneys, Letter To Sens. Grassley, Leahy, And Feinstein, 12/16/2016)

FORMER ASSISTANT ATTORNEYS GENERAL: ‘We Write In Strong Support Of The Nomination Of Jeff Sessions To Serve As The Attorney General Of The United States’

“We are former Assistant Attorneys General of the Department of Justice. We write in strong support of the nomination of Jeff Sessions to serve as the Attorney General of the United States. … We are pleased to endorse his nomination and do so without reservation.” (Former Assistant Attorneys General, Letter to Sens. Grassley, Leahy, & Feinstein, 12/12/2016)

·         “We have interacted with Senator Sessions in his role as a member of the Judiciary Committee and/or are otherwise familiar with his reputation within the law enforcement community. Senator Sessions has a long and distinguished record of experience within law enforcement. Senator Sessions served for twelve years as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama, for two years as the Attorney General of Alabama, and for two years as an Assistant United States Attorney.” (Former Assistant Attorneys General, Letter to Sens. Grassley, Leahy, & Feinstein, 12/12/2016)

·         “As United States Attorney, Senator Sessions worked to obtain the successful capital prosecution of the head of the Alabama Ku Klux Klan for the 1981 murder of Michael Donald, an African-American teenager. The career prosecutor sent from the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice in Washington to Alabama to try the case against Donald’s killers, Barry Kowalski (who also successfully prosecuted the Rodney King case), was quoted recently about the level of support he received from then United States Attorney Sessions in prosecuting the case. Kowalski said that United States Attorney Sessions ‘couldn’t have been more supportive of making sure we got convicted the murderers of the last black man who was lynched by the Klan.’ Kowalski added that ‘[a]t a time when many U.S. Attorneys in the South were not always welcoming to the Civil Rights Division, Jeff Sessions was. Jeff had the vision and the courage and the desire to do right.’ We believe that Senator Sessions, if confirmed, will bring this same courage and desire to do right to his tenure as Attorney General.” (Former Assistant Attorneys General, Letter to Sens. Grassley, Leahy, & Feinstein, 12/12/2016)

·         “In his tenure as both a Senator and a United States Attorney, Senator Sessions has demonstrated a commitment to the rule of law, and to the even-handed administration of justice. Senator Sessions was a co-sponsor of the Fair Sentencing Act, which aimed to reduce racial disparity in sentencing, as well as a bill to award Rosa Parks the Congressional Gold Medal.” (Former Assistant Attorneys General, Letter to Sens. Grassley, Leahy, & Feinstein, 12/12/2016)
