Deval Patrick writes a letter slamming Jeff Sessions
Deval Patrick has decided to get involved in the Trump transition. In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, he bashed Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions.
Some of the highlights...
“I believe it demonstrates what can happen when prosecutorial discretion is unchecked, when regard for facts is secondary to political objectives. In a republic based on law, this is not the kind of risk any of us should accept in our attorney general.”
"Donald Trump was not my candidate, but he is my President-elect, while I do not expect to agree with him on every appointment or policy choice, I believe it would be irresponsible and unpatriotic to oppose everything he does even before he does it."
"At a time when our Nation is so divided, when so many feel so deeply that their lived experience is unjust, Mr. Sessions is the wrong person to place in charge of our justice system."
