Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, testifi es Tuesday at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, one of President-elect Donald Trump's earliest supporters, told Congress on Tuesday that he would be an independent-minded attorney general who would stand up to the president. He promised to aggressively enforce the nation's laws -- even in areas such as torture, abortion, gay rights, surveillance and hate crimes, where he has made his opposition well known.
