Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes: Confirm Jeff Sessions as our next U.S. attorney general
Sen. Jeff Sessions’ record is the gold standard for someone seeking the top law-enforcement job in the nation and deserves to be confirmed as our next U.S. attorney general, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes says in a recent opinion column.
People who know Senator Sessions best—from working with him for years—described during his hearings a record on civil rights amply befitting an Attorney General nominee. Mr. Larry Thompson, a former Deputy Attorney General of the United States (who first met Senator Sessions while both men were serving as U.S. Attorneys); Mr. Jesse Seroyer, an investigator for Senator Sessions in the U.S. Attorney’s office; and Mr. William Smith, Senator Sessions’ former chief counsel—all offered testimony, based on their personal experience, debunking the caricature Senator Sessions’ detractors now try to draw. And all of them happen to be African-Americans.
Their testimony confirms what the objective evidence about Senator Sessions’ record establishes: Jeff Sessions should be confirmed as the next Attorney General of the United States.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has proven an even-handed and fair man both personally and professionally, and a man who will fight for equal rights under the law.
