Shelby Praises Sessions’ Performance in Senate Judiciary Hearing Today

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released a statement on Senator Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which began its first day of confirmation hearings on his nomination to be the next United States Attorney General:

“While it was a long day of questioning, Senator Sessions was well-prepared and represented the state of Alabama admirably.  Throughout today’s hearing, Jeff handled himself with the same humility and patience that has earned him the deep respect of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. 

“I am proud to call Jeff Sessions a dear friend and look forward to continuing to give him my unwavering support throughout the nomination process.   He is a man of great integrity who will apply the law fairly to all Americans, and I have no doubt that he will be confirmed by the Judiciary Committee as well as the full Senate.”
