Graham On Attorney General Jeff Sessions

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement on Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“Jeff Sessions is one of the most decent people I’ve ever met in my political life.  He’s a rock-solid conservative, but above all else he believes in the rule of law. Jeff understands that we are a nation of laws, not men.  On occasion, I’ve vigorously disagreed with Jeff but I’ve never once doubted his integrity or sense of fair play. 

“President Trump’s tweet today suggesting Attorney General Sessions pursue prosecution of a former political rival is highly inappropriate.   Prosecutorial decisions should be based on applying facts to the law without hint of political motivation.  To do otherwise is to run away from the long-standing American tradition of separating the law from politics regardless of party.”
