The charges could lead to a church trial, though few expect that to happen to the attorney general, the country's top lawman. Instead, the 640 Methodists charging Sessions, who include both clergy and lay members, have asked for a 'reconciling process that will help this longtime member ... step back from his harmful actions and work to repair the damage he is currently causing to immigrants, particularly families and children.'
