Attorney General Jeff Sessions is taking steps to correct the broken American justice system.
Sessions recently issued a memo detailing new Justice Department policies.
“This memorandum establishes charging and sentencing policy for the Department of Justice,” the memo stated. “Our responsibility is to fulfill our role in a way that accords with the law, advances public safety, and promotes respect for our legal system. It is of the utmost importance to enforce the law fairly and consistently.”
On Friday, Sessions said prosecutors “deserve to be unhandcuffed and not micromanaged from Washington — rather, they must be permitted to apply the law to the facts of each investigation.”
“Going forward, I have empowered our prosecutors to charge and pursue the most serious offense, as I believe the law requires — most serious readily provable offense. It means that we’re going to meet our responsibility to enforce the law with judgment and fairness. It is simply the right and moral thing to do,” he added.
However, while he corrects the mistakes of the Obama administration, he is quickly learning how petty former President Barack Obama and his cronies are.
In a recent statement, former Attorney General Eric Holder called out Sessions, saying that he is “dumb on crime.”
“The policy announced today is not tough on crime. It is dumb on crime,” he said, according to PJ Media.
“It is an ideologically motivated, cookie-cutter approach that has only been proven to generate unfairly long sentences that are often applied indiscriminately and do little to achieve long-term public safety,” Holder stated.
How productive. Rather than offer valuable advice on how to fix the justice system, Holder resorted to petty name calling.
