That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends,
it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,

Trump offers Jeff Sessions attorney general post

Trump offers Jeff Sessions attorney general post
President-elect Trump has offered Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions the post of attorney general, sources directly involved in the selection process tell CBS News. The choice of Sessions to be the nation’s top prosecutor is sure to be controversial. Sessions has been one of Mr. Trump’s closest and most consistent allies. 
But when Sessions faced Senate confirmation for a job 30 years ago, it didn’t go well. 
Nominated for a federal judgeship in 1986, Sessions, R-Ala., was dogged by racist comments he was accused of making while serving as U.S. attorney in Alabama. He was said to have called a black assistant U.S. attorney “boy” and the NAACP “un-American” and “communist-inspired.” 
Sessions was the first senator to back Mr. Trump during the campaign and is an architect of Mr. Trump’s immigration, counterterrorism and trade policies. 
His name has been floated for attorney general and secretary of defense. The Trump transition team released a statement Thursday saying the president-elect is “unbelievably impressed” with Sessions, citing his work as a U.S. attorney and state attorney general in Alabama. 
But confirmation for the four-term lawmaker, even in a Republican-controlled chamber, is not guaranteed.

But if he had actually worn the pointy hood, like Robert Byrd, he would sail right through. That capital D behind your name absolves all sins.
