Ahead of Jeff Sessions’ nomination hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee this Tuesday, American Bridge president Jessica Mackler released the following statement:
“Like Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions is a racist and a bigot in his words and actions. It’s incomprehensible that any senator would vote to put Sessions in charge of the Justice Department where he will weaken civil rights, break up immigrant families, and make it harder for people to vote.
“Rather than hold Trump accountable when he starts profiting from the presidency on day one, Jeff Sessions will work to rig the rules in Trump’s favor. It’s a big win for Trump and his family but a losing proposition for all Americans.”
