•, Al Weaver

In an interview with radio host Mark Levin Wednesday night, Sessions said a potential TPP deal would cause "a diminishment of the individual citizens' power" as the U.S. president's vote for a deal would be on par with that of the sultan of Brunei.

"It has all the earmarks of how the European Union got started. And it transfers American sovereignty, the sultan of Brunei gets the same vote as the President of the United States, and they can pass all kinds of things that could bind Americans in a lot of different ways. And as you know fundamentally, we don't have any control over them. We can't vote out the sultan of Brunei. This is a diminishment of the individual citizens' power. It is a transfer to this President, and to an international organization that we have no reason to believe will serve our interests"
