AG Healey: Sessions Should Be Rejected As US Attorney General

11.18.2016
Statement of Attorney General Maura Healey on the appointment of Senator Jeff Sessions as United States Attorney General
 
"Senator Sessions deeply concerns me as a potential Attorney General. He has made a career standing against many of our most important
values as a state. His past comments – particularly around race – are
cause for serious alarm and were reason enough for the Senate to deny
him a judicial appointment under President Reagan. If you are "OK"
with the Ku Klux Klan, you shouldn't run the Justice Department. I
hope this pick is rejected and leaders make clear he is unacceptable
in such a critical role on behalf of the people."
