Sessions vows to eliminate political bias at DOJ

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday he’s determined to eliminate “political bias” from the Justice Department, and said the department must be more open to the kind of criticism it’s facing from Congress right now.

Mr. Sessions said “the vast majority” of employees at Justice, which includes the FBI, are dedicated and patriotic Americans who do quality work. But he signaled the department has strayed from its core mission of fairly enforcing the laws as written by Congress, and said his “purpose every day” is to get it back on track.

“It means absolutely eliminating political bias or favoritism — in either direction — from our investigations and prosecutions. That sort of thinking is the antithesis of what the department stands for, and I won’t tolerate it,” he said in a speech in Norfolk.

The FBI has been rocked by revelations that an agent and a lawyer both involved at one point in the Russia investigation exchanged thousands of text messages suggesting a deep antipathy toward President Trump. The agent was also part of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails, and his texts have raised more questions about bias in that probe as well.
