Attorney General Jeff Sessions issuing a stern warning over the multitude of leaks coming out of the White House. Nathan Rousseau Smith (@fantasticmrnate) reports.
Trump-era law enforcement means business on guns, drugs and gangs.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions showed today why he’s one of the best leaders President Trump has selected to move our country forward; no one doubts after today that he will bring to justice those who have put our national security at risk with unauthorized leaks of classified information. Already four people have been charged and there are numerous criminal referrals.
This comes on the heels of the news earlier this week that his job is safe, per new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. Sticking with Sessions is, and will prove to be, the right move by President Trump.
Sessions is already returning stature and respect to the Department of Justice after the stench left there by President Barack Obama’s former attorneys general Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. Under the previous administration, the Justice Department created a rift with local law enforcement. That’s why law enforcement organization and agencies were so eager to endorse Sessions’ confirmation.
The Obama administration’s unconstitutional decrees — such as giving “executive amnesty” to illegal immigrants — made not enforcing the law a higher priority than prosecuting drug crimes in the midst of an opioid epidemic, cracking down on gangs which have terrorized communities across the country, and prosecuting gun crimes. Sessions has been a breath of fresh air, reversing these troubling trends by prioritizing the rule of law and the safety of citizens.
Perhaps more than anyone in the Trump administration, except for the president and vice president themselves, he has shown the American people that someone in Washington has heard the message they delivered with their votes last fall. Under President Trump’s leadership, Sessions’ actions along with the leadership of Gen. Kelly have already had an impact on the southern border. Within just a few months of taking office, apprehensions of people illegally crossing the border dropped to a 17-year low.
