INTERVIEW: Former US Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez

LUBBOCK -

Former US Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez talked to Fox 34 about Trump's impact on national security, his Supreme Court selections, and the promise of the current US Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.

"He has been unpredictable in certain instances, but that's not always a bad thing," Gonzalez said. "I think to have your enemies be unsure about how the President is going to act can be a very good thing."

Gonzalez said he thinks Trump's Supreme Court nominations were a home run. He also said he knows first hand that the position of Attorney General is very difficult, but that he has confidence in Sessions. 

"You're going to be involved in the most controversial decisions that have to be made for any administration," Gonzalez said. "It's not surprising that sometimes you do things, perhaps in hindsight, that you wish you'd done a bit differently."

Gonzalez said he supports Session's decision to recuse himself from the dealings with Russia.

"This is an investigation that people in this country have confidence in," Gonzalez said. "It's impartial and done the right way."

It's hard to farm if you're not somewhat optimistic, but this is certainly testing our patience, testing ...
