Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited New Hampshire on Thursday and announced new efforts to combat the opioid addiction crisis.

During his visit, Sessions singled out the city of Lawrence, Mass., characterizing it as a "sanctuary for drug dealers and fentynal dealers in this country." Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera takes issue with how Sessions characterized his city. Rivera said he might sue the attorney general for libel.

Also this week, President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to succeed retiring Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy.

Kavanaugh currently serves on U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and teaches at Harvard Law School.
