WASHINGTON (KWQC) — On Friday morning, November 18, 2016, President-elect Donald Trump announced his selection of Senator Jeff Sessions to be U.S. Attorney General. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley issued the following statement.
“Senator Sessions is a respected member and former Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee who has worked across the aisle on major legislation. He knows the Justice Department as a former U.S. attorney, which would serve him very well in this position. With this background, I’m confident he would be reported favorably out of the committee.”
