Senator Sessions has vast experience that has prepared him well to assume the responsibilities of Attorney General. Senator Sessions proved his skills as a law enforcement official in the Department of Justice as a U.S. Attorney and his skills as an administrator as the Attorney General of Alabama. In the Senate, he showed the breadth and depth of his knowledge of legal policy and consistently demonstrated concern for solving the problems faced by U.S. citizens within the limits of his power as a member of the federal government.
Throughout his long career, Senator Sessions has proven that he is committed to the rule of law and protecting the rights of individual citizens, without regard to race, gender, or economic status. He has sought to interpret the Constitution and the law impartially. He has shown character to remain committed to his principles even in the face of political criticism.
The RNLA is the home of Republican lawyers in the Republican Party. In 2010, we presented Senator Sessions our highest award, the Edwin Meese III Award, in recognition of his efforts to uphold the rule of law. We are steadfast in our belief that Senator Sessions will make an exemplary Attorney General.
Thank you for your careful consideration of Senator Sessions, his experience, and his excellent qualifications to be the 84th Attorney General of the United States. We encourage the Judiciary Committee, and the whole Senate, to promptly confirm Senator Sessions as Attorney General.
