"He did say he wasn't just talking about Donald Trump or Barack Obama - he said these problems have been going on for a long time".
The Justice Department also is working with state and local authorities, said Sessions, as they "clearly have jurisdiction, too, and often they're the ones that have the best charges". He noted that the White House had expressly condemned white supremacy-driven violence in a statement Sunday.
Mr Sessions was denied a federal judgeship more than 30 years ago amid explosive allegations of racial discrimination.
"Update: The President will meet with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Chris Wray on Charlottesville at 11:30AM", the White House emailed in an update to the President's schedule Monday morning slightly after 9 a.m. ET.
He made the remarks in response to neo-Nazi publication The Daily Stormer, which praised Trump's response on the deadly Charlottesville protest.
However, the greater issue of clashes between the rallying white supremacists and counter-protesters is now not under investigation.
Still, Sessions was also quick to defend Trump'sequivocal response to the violent clashes that occurred Saturday during a white nationalist rally to protest the removal of a Confederate statue.

He will also meet with Mr Sessions and new FBI Director Christopher Wray about Charlottesville before heading to Trump Tower in NY.
The attorney general had previously said the incident "does meet the definition of domestic terrorism".
"It very well could be a civil rights violation or a hate crime, and there might be other charges that could be brought", Sessions told NBC News during an exclusive interview at the Justice Department.
Sessions said that the DOJ will work with state officials in Virginia and federal charges don't have to filed right away, but will be brought when justified by the investigation.
"His initial statement on this roundly and unequivocally condemned hatred and violence and bigotry", Sessions said on ABC's "Good Morning America" as part of his appearances on morning shows.
In the hours after the incident, Trump addressed the violence in broad strokes, saying that he condemns "in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides".
