On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee over allegations of collusion with Russia. It was an accusation he called a “detestable lie.” But in the face of those allegations, Sessions said he was more determined than ever to continue the mission he swore to uphold.
“The innuendos, the leaks you can be sure will not intimidate me,” Sessions said. “In fact, these events have only strengthened my resolve to fulfill my duty to reduce crime, to support our federal, state, and local law enforcement officers who work on our streets every day.”
The attorney general said his Department of Justice will crack down, and crack down hard, on crime, drugs, and terrorism and reiterated his promise to criminals that there is nowhere to hide:
“Together, we are telling the gangs, the cartels, the fraudsters, and the terrorists: We are coming after you.”
“Every one of our citizens, no matter who they are or where they live, has the right to be safe in their homes and their communities,” Sessions added. “And I will not be deterred — I will not let this department be deterred — from its vital mission.”
