ABC: Newly Released Footage Shows Sessions Sparring With DOJ Interns

Video published Thursday by ABC News of a Q&A between Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Justice Department interns shows Sessions arguing for conservative positions on policing, the enforcement of drug laws, gun access and other policy areas.

In one exchange, Sessions told an intern — who had named young black men killed by police officers and said that some people feared the the police more than their neighbors — “That may be the view in Berkeley, but it’s not the view in most places in the country. I’m just telling you.”

“We need to confront violent crime in America,” he continued. “And cities that have abandoned traditional police activities like Baltimore and Chicago, murder rates have surged, particularly in poor neighborhoods.”


ABC News published video of the June 22 “Summer Intern Lecture Series” after a public records request, the network said. The published footage shows DoJ interns taking a sometimes combative stance toward their boss, and Sessions responding in kind.

“The Second Amendment, you’re aware of that?” Sessions told one intern who asked why he favored stricter controls on marijuana than guns.

“Dr. Whatever Your Name Is, you can write the [American Medical Association] and see why they think otherwise,” he added later, referring to the intern’s opinion of marijuana’s health effects.

On legal drugs, though, the attorney general was more lax. When an intern asked what Sessions would do about the role pharmaceutical companies and doctors play in the opioid crisis, Sessions didn’t mention any law enforcement remedies.

“We need doctors to get better informed,” he said. “We need to pharmacies and hospitals to be more careful with containing the sale of those drugs.”

    He ain’t saying nothing that ain’t true. Might be ignorant in the totality of the interns point. But what he is saying is true, it’s in agreement with the reason Kap kneeled. The police serve and protect whites in a way they don’t people of color.

    So the viewpoint across the country of police isn’t the same. He saying in actuality that blacks and poorer income area wiites..etc. Are to blame for the actions of the police that police them.

    That’s his viewpoint, that’s what’s wrong with his view point. Don’t just post this like this without providing context. You just want people to come in here and hate white people just cause, without just cause.

    He was definitly a dick but he answered the questions in a politically correct way. The people asking the questions just didnt have their facts together for follow up questions, they made it easy for him.

    your post was all over the place ....*shrugs*

    but why is context is needed when it's an already a pretty well established fact the attorney general is not our friend

    this is just further proof of that

    he has been steady pushing the narrative that the police have been unfairly criticized and neutered ...if you believe that to be true...we'll just have to agree to disagree

    yes neighborhoods in places like chicago and they want relief from the crime and violence ...but they also will tell you that giving the police more guns or latitude isn't the answer as session has suggested

    his position on the war on drugs is especially troubling considering the rise in violence around the country can be connected to the illegal heroin trade

    My post was all over the place?

    Context is needed for the same reason someone has already stated about no follow up questions. It’s like here, Jeff Sessions is racist, now let’s discuss how we feel about him being racist.

    Instead of here, Jeff Sessions has a racist viewpoint that black people deserve bad policing and feels that policing is legit cause white people arent complaining about it.

    Totally ignoring the why...which I mentioned Kap..people see the stance and ignore the why

    Sessions view point has always been that police misconduct is being overblown by liberals, the media causing unnecessary strife...and that is the reason crime is on the rise

    ...hence his response that this may be the view in "Berkeley" when confronted with the claim minorities often live in fear of police brutality... Berkeley being a white liberal college town opposed to a Detroit or Chicago

    To which the person who made the claim responded “It is the view in Columbus, Ohio where the police just stomped on a gentleman’s head"

    Sessions was being dismissive

    No follow up questions were necessary
