Sessions: I Have No Reason to Doubt Roy Moore's Accusers
During a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was asked about the allegations facing Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore.
Multiple women have claimed Moore had inappropriate sexual contact with them when they were teenagers.
"Do you believe these young women," Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) asked Sessions.
"I have no reason to doubt these young women," Sessions answered.
Jackson Lee asked if Moore defeats Democratic candidate Doug Jones, would Sessions launch Justice Department investigations into the allegations against Moore.
"We will evaluate every case as to whether or not it should be investigated," Sessions said. "This kind of case would normally be a state case."
Jackson Lee said she wants to make sure that if Moore is elected to the Senate, there will at least be the possibility of a federal review of his case.
"We will do our duty," Sessions said.
Moore and Jones are running for the Senate seat that Sessions vacated when he accepted President Donald Trump's attorney general nomination.
