President-Elect Donald Trump has selected Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as his new Attorney General. As Attorney General, Stevens will primarily be tasked with deciding, of all the many, many federal crimes that are committed, which ones the government will actually try to prosecute.
Drug crimes? Immigration offenses? Firearms offenses? White collar crime? State violations of federal marijuana law?
It will be interesting to see what he does.
