Sessions pledges to recuse himself from Clinton investigations

Sessions pledges to recuse himself from Clinton investigations

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said Tuesday he would recuse himself from any possible investigations related to Hillary Clinton if he is confirmed as President-elect Donald Trump‘s attorney general.

Sessions said during a confirmation hearing the politically charged comments he made about the Clintons during the presidential campaign would give the appearance he is not impartial in potential probes of the private email server she used while secretary of State or the Clinton Foundation.

“I believe that could place my objectivity in question,” Sessions told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). “I believe the proper thing would be for me to recuse myself.”

Republicans in Congress have vowed to continue an investigation into Clinton’s private email setup.

Black Pastors Back Jeff Sessions At Rally

Black Pastors Back Jeff Sessions At Rally

A group of black pastors Monday criticized African-American opponents of attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions for demonizing the Alabama Republican, instead characterizing him as someone who shows “respect and care for people of all races.”

The ministers are holdout Sessions supporters in a much larger crowd of opponents among Southern black clergy and African-American and civil rights groups, including the North Carolina Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Alabama NAACP and the activist group PICO, which uses congregations and churches to help in community organizing.

“There is an attempt by some to demonize people and call them racist when there is actually no proof for it,” Evangelical Bishop Harry Jackson said at a Capitol Hill news conference. “Let me say clearly, Sen. Sessions is not a racist.”

Jackson, the pastor of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Md., said Sessions “worked to bankrupt the KKK in Alabama with a $7 million judgment,” and helped to desegregate the state’s public school system.

Cruz: Prepare for Democrats' 'vile efforts' to 'smear' Sessions' name

Cruz: Prepare for Democrats' 'vile efforts' to 'smear' Sessions' name

A Republican senator says attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., is about to weather severe attacks from opposition groups over the next few days as his confirmation hearings take off.

"Over the next several days, you will see numerous vile efforts to smear Senator Sessions' good name. His opponents will dredge up the bogus, discredited attacks made against him at his judicial confirmation hearing 30 years ago," Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, wrote in an op-ed published Monday. "There will be attempts to re-litigate the presidential campaign. People will bring up votes Sessions has taken over the past 20 years with which they disagree — and this last bit will be the most telling."

Cruz said attempts to butcher Sessions' past votes would be "irrelevant" because his job as attorney general would be enforcing the laws, not passing them. Sessions "undoubtedly has the integrity" to enforce laws he does not support, Cruz added. Read more from the Washington Examiner.

Chaffetz vows to continue Clinton email investigation

Chaffetz vows to continue Clinton email investigation

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said Monday he will continue to investigate Hillary Clinton's use of a primary email server while leading the State Department, but claimed he "won't be a cheerleader" for President-elect Donald Trump.

"Just because there was a political election doesn't mean it goes away," the Utah Republican said of the Clinton investigation.

He called the classified emails that surfaced on the server "the largest breach of security in the history of the State Department."

The FBI decided not to recommend charges against Clinton, though their months-long investigation -- and last-minute reopening of it -- cast a pall over her campaign.
