Denver TV personality Aaron Harber will talk to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions Sunday on a program carried nationally by AXS TV.

The episode airs at 6 a.m. Mountain.

Harber said the conversation covers the former Alabama senator’s “successes, struggles and more.”

Sessions has been a pivotal national figure in the Trump administration, often drawing the president’s scorn for recusing himself from the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Sessions’ future in the administration is tenuous.

“During the discussion, the attorney general outlines his commitment to the Rule of Law, which he believes is something that is uniquely American, and the importance of filling the Nation’s courts with judges who are bound to the Constitution rather than advancing their own agendas,” Harber said.

At one juncture, Sessions says, “We have the greatest legal system in the world, and there’s no judiciary better than our federal courts. We need to protect it, however, and they need to be careful … if they lose public confidence because the public thinks they’re becoming policy advocates instead of neutral umpires, then the judiciary will be damaged.

“I think that’s the greatest potential threat. President Trump has appointed … highly qualified judges — smart, principled, who believe fundamentally in this concept.”

“Sessions discusses simplifying outdated laws and regulations, as well as addressing declining prison populations and getting members of the brutal and widespread MS-13 gang off the streets; his plans to tackle the country’s opioid crisis; and his opposition to the legalization of marijuana,” Harber said.

“The Aaron Harber Show” joined AXS TV this fall and made its debut on the network with an exclusive sit-down interview with Robert Mueller on Oct. 14.
