Attorney General Sessions Launches Plan As Pentagon Announces Transgendered Troops Begin In January ~ James Baker (

Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The Trump administration has decided not to appeal several federal courts that blocked the President’s ban announced in July that would have stopped transgendered people from enlisting beginning on January 1st.

President Trump’s announcement can still be seen on his official twitter account.


AG Jeff Sessions and the Department of Justice have not abandoned the case completely, however. Instead, they are awaiting the completion of a Department of Defense study that will provide objective evidence to be used in the successful appeal which will be resubmitted sometime next year.

One official provided additional details to Fox News.

“The Department of Defense has announced that it will be releasing an independent study of these issues in the coming weeks. So rather than litigate this interim appeal before that occurs, the administration has decided to wait for DOD’s study and will continue to defend the President’s lawful authority in district court in the meantime.”

Following Trump’s announcement this summer, LGBTQ activists filed a lawsuit. In response, four federal judges ruled that the Commander in Chief was unable to enforce the change.

While the DOJ awaits the Department of Defense study, transgendered individuals will have the opportunity to enlist, though it is unclear how their service would be handled in the event that AG Sessions successfully appeals the federal courts, allowing the ban to go into effect.

The Attorney from Lambda Legal, a LGBT rights advocacy group, said the organization is “relieved that we don’t have to hit pause on the constitutional rights of transgender people who are willing and able to serve our country.”

While those on the left celebrate this as a successful derailment of Trump’s policy decision, it will likely be short lived as DOJ officials complete the appeal process in the coming weeks.
