Blumenauer Statement on the Resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions

 

Washington, DC – Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) released the following statement on Donald Trump forcing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign:

 

“Jeff Sessions is one of the worst Attorneys General we’ve ever had. He was an unapologetic facilitator of Trump’s racist, xenophobic, anti-immigrant agenda and his departure is long overdue. But our next focus must be protecting Robert Mueller, because we have a president seeking to pick a judge for his own trial in Matthew Whittaker. I’m working on legislation that protects the Mueller investigation and Congress must make sure that any nominee put forward will be committed to protecting the rule of law and not just Trump.”
