  1. Bobby Jindal:

    Five years ago my administration committed to holding BP accountable for the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Today, through extensive coordination with the Attorney General's office and the State's coastal authorities, we've made good on that promise.

  2. Donald Trump:

    No, there wouldn't be. He would have stopped it immediately. ... Jeff Sessions was a disaster. I made Jeff Sessions -- I didn't want to make Jeff Sessions Attorney General but Jeff Sessions was the first senator to endorse me so I felt a little bit of an obligation.

  3. Kristen Clarke:

    Someone that is sensitive to that understands why the federal government and Justice Department needs to intervene. ... So there's a sensitivity practice and an experienced practice that people of color could bring in that was totally absent in the last four years. i think this is one of the most important decisions that Joe Biden will have to make finding the right attorney general, who can restore a commitment to equal justice under law for all, who can make protection of racial justice and civil rights a top priority. These are incredibly important principles and values of the country needs right now in its next attorney general, so I'm glad that the next administration isn't racing to announce a decision and being really thoughtful and careful in deciding who they put forth for this important position.

  5. Rod Rosenstein:

    If there's evidence, senator, that the attorney general and the president have information relevant to a criminal investigation in this case, as in previous cases that I've handled I'll make sure they're questioned.
