    “November Rain”: Antitrust Enforcement on Behalf of American Consumers and Taxpayers


    Good morning, and thank you for the kind introduction. I’d like to thank the American Bar Association for your invitation to this year’s Fall Forum and Deb Garza for her leadership of the Section this year.

Over the past year, the Antitrust Division has been hard at work on behalf of American consumers. We made a number of significant enforcement actions this week, but before I turn to those, I’d like to update you on a few recent changes in the Front Office. First, Michael Murray recently joined us from the Deputy Attorney General’s office, whe...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions Delivers Remarks at the Alliance Defending Freedom's Summit on Religious Liberty


    Alliance Defending Freedom's Summit on Religious Liberty, ML
    ~ Wednesday, August 8, 2018



    Remarks as prepared for delivery Thank you all for being here. On behalf of the President of the United States, Donald Trump, I want to thank all of you for your work for and commitment to religious freedom at such a time as this. As President Trump said to the National Prayer Breakfast last year, “freedom of religion is a sacred right, but it is also…under threat all around us…I’ve never seen it so openly [threatened].” This is a problem around the world. In the Middle East, some religious minorities like the Yazidis and Christians, after centuries of coexistence with religious majorities, are facing the possibility of extinction.

    Remarks as prepared for delivery


    Thank you for that kind introduction, Chris. Welcome to the National Symposium on Forensic Science. We are honored to host local, state, and federal prosecutors at the Department of Justice for this event. We are proud to co-sponsor this Symposium with the National Association of Attorneys General and the National District Attorneys Association. Our Department enjoys a strong relationship with your organizations, and we appreciate your support. Last year, amid a surge of violent crime and drug overdose deaths, one of our Department’s top priorities was to reinforce the federal government’s coordination with state and local law enforcement. President Trump considers it imperative for federal prosecutors to support state and local partners and help to reduce crime. Attorney General Jeff Sessions consistently emphasizes that most law enforcement officers work for state and local agencies, and we cannot fight crime effectively unless we are working together. I worked closely with state and local prosecuto
