Attorney General Steve Marshall Statement on Resignation of
United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions
(MONTGOMERY) – Attorney General Steve Marshall issued the following statement
upon learning of the resignation of United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Wednesday afternoon.
“During his time as U.S. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions has been the standard-bearer
for upholding the rule of law and fighting every day to make America safer. He has
been a vital partner to state attorneys general, and to me personally, in dealing with
violent crime and in strengthening our efforts to combat America’s opioid crisis. While
his style was to work quietly behind the scenes, he made a powerful positive difference
in rebuilding the confidence of prosecutors and law enforcement personnel across the
nation – not just as U.S. Attorney General, but also as U.S. Senator and Alabama
Attorney General. My staff and I will greatly miss Jeff’s leadership at the Department of
Justice and we wish him all the best.”
