With Jeff Sessions out as U.S Attorney General, many question whether President Trump will appoint a replacement who will attempt to end the federal probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election; a known sore spot of the president’s.
U.S Senator Ben Sasse says such an appointment would be a non-starter for him. He believes the probe, led by Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller, is critical to the security of the nation.
“The Mueller investigation is important,” says Sasse, “The Russian cyber attacks against the U.S have been real (and) are information attacks.”
Sasse says Russia isn’t the only nation looking to try to exploit internal divisions in America, so it is in America’s best interest Mueller finish his investigation.
Sasse also turns down the idea of appointing anyone who would be overly partisan.
As for sessions, Sasse says he served his position with honor, but notes he was “obviously under lots of stress and pressure” and wishes him well as he steps away from public office.
