Sessions: I ‘Revere’ the Constitution and ‘Am Committed to the Rule of Law’

‘I believe in fairness and impartiality and equal justice under the law’

SESSIONS: “So I come before you today as a colleague who's worked with you for years and some of you 20 years. You know who I am. You know what I believe in. You know that I'm a man of my word and can be trusted to do what I say I will do. You know that I revere the Constitution. That I am committed to the rule of law. And you know that I believe in fairness and impartiality and equal justice under the law. Over the years you’ve heard me say many times that I love the Department of Justice. The office of attorney general of the United States is not a normal political office. And anyone who holds it must have total fidelity to the laws and the Constitution of the United States. He or she must be committed to following the law. He or she must be willing to tell the president or other top officials no if he or they overreach. He or she cannot be a mere rubber stamp."
