The vice president seemed to suggest he doesn’t have a problem with his former colleague leading the Department of Justice.
On “State of the Union,” host Jake Tapper asked Joe Biden about the nomination of his former colleague, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), to attorney general.
Before talking about the nomination, Biden pointed out he led the fight against the appointment of Jeff Sessions as a federal judge in the 1980s.
But, Biden added, “[p]eople learn, people change.” Biden said his “general rule is the president gets to choose who he wants or she wants for their Cabinet members.”
Biden added: “Within bounds, the president should get the person that they want for that job as long as they commit under oath that they’re gonna uphold the law.”
Tapper said it sounds like Biden thinks Sessions, as AG, would uphold the law. Biden concluded: “I’m hoping he will.”
