WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) released the following statement regarding United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

Jeff Sessions is a friend, a former colleague, and an honorable public servant. He is a man of deep conviction and principle who has always stood up for the rule of law.  As a senator and as attorney general, Jeff has always had the best interests of our country at heart.  While I’m disappointed he will no longer serve in this role, I want to thank him for his faithful service to our country.
