The United States Attorney General is the head of the U.S. Department of Justice, that sets legal policy in the areas of environmental enforcement, anti-trust enforcement, and civil rights. In law enforcement alone, the attorney general is the head of three separate agencies, each of them with sweeping powers — the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Enforcement.
Trump’s choice for U.S. Attorney General is former U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions, who considers the ACLU “un-American,” and used the power of his office to ‘humiliate and intimidate African American voters’. As Attorney General of Alabama and U.S. Senator, Sessions fought against racial equality, women’s rights, due process for immigrants, and voting rights.
