Attorney General Jeff Sessions: “I think we’ve had a slide over quite a number of years in which courts and advocates and politicians have disrespected the primacy of law and that has long term damaging effects for the country and we’re trying to get us back on the traditional view that protects us all in the long run.
David Brody: “Do liberals and progressives not need to be so concerned when you use the word ‘traditional view?’ They get a little out of sorts when you use a word like ‘traditional.’
Attorney General Jeff Sessions: “Absolutely. I think they are too sensitive to that sometimes. I don’t mind saying it at all. It’s this umbrella of law and the Constitution that protects us. One professor said, ‘If you respect the Constitution, you will apply its principles even if you disagree with them.’ Otherwise, you get to the point where nothing is firm. There’s no wall of protection for anyone, whether they’re liberal or conservative, secular or religious. And so in the long run we all benefit for a strong Constitutional, traditional order and judges should enforce the law as it was written and intended, not as they would like it to be.”
