The pick of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions to be U.S. attorney general may have angered liberals and many on the far Left, like Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
But law enforcement officials and criminal justice experts are rallying behind the pick of the Alabama Republican.
“I’m hopeful that the destructive rhetoric and actions initiated by the president and often echoed by Attorney General Holder that divides law enforcement from the citizens … becomes a distant memory under Sen. Sessions’ leadership.”
If confirmed by the Senate, Sessions will be the 84th attorney general. He would preside over the Justice Department, all U.S. attorneys and the FBI.
