If 1986 is any indication, Jeff Sessions won't have an easy confirmation hearing. For Democrats, taking down Donald Trump's first Senate ally would be a major win in an otherwise bleak political environment for liberals. The muckrakers will come out in force. Sessions will be called every name under the sun, opponents will dig up every misstep from his past, and then he'll be confirmed—if the rule of law still matters.

Most people don't know what the “rule of law” means. It's more than a catchy political talking point. John Adams famously noted that a republic is “a government of laws, and not of men.” Through our elected officials, we agree on the laws that define the contours of our society. Where those laws are duly enacted, no man is above their reach or immune from their enforcement.

That theme has been a hallmark of Jeff Sessions's professional career, but it hasn't been a reality over the past eight years.
