Sessions vows to battle bias following FBI texting controversy

In a speech to law enforcement officials in Norfolk, Va., Sessions said his mission was simply to enforce the law and vowed to root out political bias among federal law enforcement.

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

“It means identifying mistakes of the past, and correcting them for the future. When we find problems, we’re addressing them head on, not sweeping them under the rug.”
