Atty Gen Jeff Sessions vowed Mon. that the Justice Dept will 'take the most vigorous action' to protect Americans against 'racism and bigotry' in the aftermath of the tragedy in Charlottesville, VA, over the weekend. Sessions said on CBS's 'This Morning' that he and FBI Director Christopher Wray will meet with Pres. Donald Trump Monday to discuss the violence that left one woman dead after white supremacists clashed with counter-protesters. The meeting was not originally on Trump's schedule. 'You can be sure this Department of Justice in this administration is going to take the most vigorous action to protect the right of people like Heather Heyer, to protest against racism and bigotry,' Sessions said on NBC's 'Today' show. 'We're going to protect the right to assemble and march. And we're going to prosecute anybody, to the full extent of the law, that violates their ability to do so.'
