Two more notable recent criticisms of tough turn by AG Jeff Sessions

I have noted in a few prior posts various criticisms of the US Attorney General's new tough charging and sentencing guidance for federal prosecutors (which got an extra jolt of attention when AG Sessions took to the editorial pages of the Washington Post to make his case via this opinion piece).  This week I have notice these two more notable criticisms:

Via Real Clear Politics, "Trump Should Reject Sessions' Stance on Sentencing Reform" by Brett Tolman

Via The Washington Post, "Jeff Sessions isn’t making America safer. He might be making it more dangerous." By Inimai Chettiar and Ames C. Grawert

UPDATE: Here is one more notable new addition via Forbes, "What Sessions Doesn't Get: Narcotics Trafficking Is A Market" by Mark Osler
