Today, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement on President-elect Trump’s nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) for Attorney General:
“Over the last two years, I’ve had the pleasure of calling Senator Sessions my friend and colleague. While Senator Sessions and I certainly don’t agree on the specifics of every major issue, including immigration reform and criminal justice reform, he always expresses our policy differences in the form of productive and gracious exchanges of ideas. From my experience working with him on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, I consider him to be hands-down one of the fairest and most accessible chairmen of any congressional committee. 
“These are some of the reasons Senator Sessions is so well-liked by his colleagues, and respected by leaders of both parties. As Attorney General, he will follow the rule of law, be accessible, and address the organizational and accountability issues plaguing the Department of Justice, which are qualities and priorities that have unfortunately been missing from the department’s leadership over the last eight years.”
