It’s Time Jeff Sessions resigned

Read Jeff Sessions’ resignation letter: ‘Thank you for the opportunity, Mr. President’

Sessions’ resignation letter: ‘Thank you for the opportunity’
The day after the midterm elections, President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff SessionsWednesday.
In a resignation letter sent to the president, Sessions noted that he was asked to resign but thanked Trump “for the opportunity” to be attorney general. He also listed what he considered his accomplishments during his tenure.
Read the letter below.
Dear Mr. President,
At your request, I am submitting my resignation.
Since the day I was honored to be sworn in as Attorney General of the United States, I came to work at the Department of Justice every day determined to do my duty and serve my country. I have done so to the best of my ability, working to support the fundamental legal processes that are the foundation of justice.

 

The team we assembled embraced your directive to be a law and order Department of Justice. We prosecuted the largest number of violent offenders and firearm defendants in our country’s history. We took transnational gangs that are bringing violence and death across our borders and protected national security. We did our part to restore immigration enforcement. We targeted the opioid epidemic by prosecuting doctors, pharmacists, and anyone else who contributes to this crisis with new law enforcement tools and determination. And we have seen results. After two years of rising violent crime and homicides prior to this administration, those trends have reversed–thanks to the hard work of our prosecutors and law enforcement around the country.
