Inhofe Statement on Attorney General Sessions

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) made the following statement after Attorney General Jeff Sessions submitted his resignation at President Trump’s request.

“As Attorney General, Jeff Sessions served America well by standing up for our law-enforcement officers and tackling key issues, including strengthening immigration enforcement and combating the opioid epidemic. He is a man of integrity, who used his leadership to uphold the rule of law each and every day.

“But more importantly than that, Jeff Sessions is one of my closest personal friends and I hope he’ll have more time with his grandkids.”
