U.S Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a notorious racist, continues to demean his office — now by untruthfulness while under oath. With a wildly authoritarian President, AG Sessions is exacerbating the problem.

Every day it becomes clearer that local offices, including District Attorney offices, need to be filled with real progressives whose careers demonstrate their willingness to resist government's unjust and un-American exercise of power. The law must apply equally to everyone, from the U.S. Attorney General to local police and suspects. This the definition of justice, and justice makes us safer.
