WASHINGTON, Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) said today the selection of Senator Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General and Rep. Mike Pompeo as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) reveal that President-elect Trump is dedicated to elevating "excellent leaders" to key positions within his Administration.
"These choices are fantastic. Both are excellent leaders who will help set the tone for a Trump Administration that is serious about upholding the Constitution and the rule of law while elevating our intelligence capabilities at a time when our country is facing grave danger from terrorists," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. "As Attorney General, Sen. Sessions will bring stability and credibility back to a troubled Justice Department under the Obama Administration. Sen. Sessions has the knowledge, leadership, and capability to restore the institutional credibility at the Justice Department.
Sekulow added: "In Rep. Mike Pompeo, you have a dedicated conservative who understands the need for enhanced intelligence gathering to protect America during this most dangerous time. As CIA Director, Rep. Pompeo is exactly the right person for the job – bringing experience and a commitment to protect America from radical Islamic terrorists."
