Attorney General Sessions is Doing His Job

A recent CNN news story mischaracterized my trust in Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Jeff Sessions has my full trust and I believe he has done an excellent job in de-politicizing the Department of Justice. The DOJ has a number of ongoing investigations and Attorney General Sessions will ultimately be judged by the outcome of those investigations, but as it stands, he is doing his job when the only leaks are coming from those being investigated. While I share the President’s concerns about the Russia investigation and believe it should end, Jeff Sessions is recused from that. I believe that Rod Rosenstein, on the other hand, has not represented the Department well, especially in regard to Congressional oversight and document production. This is what I told the CNN reporter; for CNN to reinterpret my comments for the sake of headlines is the very definition of fake news.
