Jack Kerwick, The Democrats are hoping to break their spectacular, nearly nine year losing streak by forcing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign. That he recused himself from an investigation into the alleged connections between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is being chalked up by some as a victory. This is ludicrous.
John Hayward, The Democrats and their media are making a big push to portray Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a Russian agent, or at least catch him in a perjury trap, because they had to talk about something other than President Trump’s address to Congress until the weekend news cycle kicks in. One cannot overstate
Ronal Serpas, A central tenet of President Trump’s campaign was restoring “law and order” to our country. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has pledged to do the same. Last week, the president spoke to law enforcement and signed three executive orders to reduce crime. We are grateful the president has expressed strong support for our work.
Cortney O’Brien, Former Attorney General Eric Holder, who now works for the Covington & Burling Law Firm, said Americans should give the new AG Jeff Sessions a chance. The Obama appointee, addressing a group of students and faculty at the University at Buffalo on Thursday, said we may even be pleasantly surprised by Sessions, who, it’s worth noting, voted for
Arthur Schaper, I have waited for this moment for two years. US Senator Jeff Sessions has become our chief law enforcement officer. In his own right he will stop illegal immigration and right our country’s national interests in full. Sessions would have been a great Senate Majority Leader. But Attorney General is just fine. What
Bill Sardi, Washington Post reporter Chris Cillizza extols Senator Marco Rubio for his recent Rodney King-like speech (“Can’t we all just get along?”).

Joseph Klein, Race baiters and hypocrites turn on a fellow senator — and are defeated. Despite childish Democrat obstructionism, including a needless all night talkfest to delay the inevitable outcome, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions as this nation’s next attorney general by a vote of 52-47. As with his other cabinet nominations,
Jeff Poor, Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) elaborated on his party’s efforts to slow the confirmation of President Donald Trump’s cabinet appointees, including Jeff Sessions, who was confirmed earlier in the day by the U.S. Senate. Host Rachel Maddow told Schumer she had been told by former
John Fund, Yes, Mitch McConnell’s slapdown of Elizabeth Warren was justified but… The delay and denounce tactics of Democratic senators finally got to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Tuesday night, he used a seldom-deployed rule to end the speech Senator Elizabeth Warren (R-Mass.) was making against the confirmation of fellow Senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general. McConnell
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz slammed Senate Democrats on Wednesday for attacking attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions. “The charges she was making against Jeff Sessions are demonstrably false, they’re slanderous, they’re ugly,” Cruz said in an interview with Fox News referring to comments made by his colleague Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). The Massachusetts Senator was reprimanded and
Matt Vespa, Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) attorney general nomination has been fraught with partisan politics and gimmicks. Senate Democrats pulled every procedural maneuver in the book to delay a committee vote on his nomination. On February 1, Sessions was finally approved by an 11-9 party line vote to move his nomination to the Senate for
The Senate voted along party lines in favor of a rule that essentially silenced Senator Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday night after she quoted from a letter written by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow, Coretta Scott King, during her criticism of Sen. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s pick for Attorney General. The rule states that senators may
