The Court Is Still in Sessions 0

An attorney who once worked for the Department of Justice recounts his experiences with Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, who is Donald Trump’s selection for Attorney-General of the United States, responsible for ensuring that the Department of Justice concerns itself with, well, justice. A nugget:

I was a young lawyer in the civil rights division at the Justice Department in 1981 when I first encountered Jeff Sessions, then the new U.S. attorney for Alabama. I met him while I was handling a major voting rights case in Mobile, and I relayed a rumor I’d heard: A federal judge there had allegedly referred to a civil rights lawyer as “a traitor to his race” for taking on black clients. Sessions responded, “Well, maybe he is.”
