WASHINGTON, Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) said tonight the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General of the United States represents an important step forward in bringing much needed trust and confidence back to the Justice Department. The ACLJ noted that "his commitment to the rule of law is extraordinary and badly needed in the Department of Justice."
"Attorney General Jeff Sessions will make an exceptional Attorney General," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. "His understanding and commitment to the rule of law is extraordinary and badly needed in the Department of Justice - the chief enforcer of federal laws. His lifetime commitment to preserving the Constitution and the rule of law is vital and no doubt will serve him well in this new position. After eight years of a Justice Department that was deeply politicized and incapable of doing its job, I am truly delighted that Attorney General Sessions will be at the helm of one of the most critical departments in our government."
