An Alabama congressman played down the turmoil in the White House, saying lawmakers in Congress remain at work despite those issues.

"It's not a distraction to people in Congress because we continue to get our work done," said Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Ala. Thursday in an interview on CNN's "New Day."

Lawmakers' constituents are not concerned about reports of strife in the White House, Byrne said.

"What's happened over at the White House seems to be stuff that's happened internally. And I can tell you when I go home, and talk to people in my district, they don't care about all that stuff. They want to know what we're doing about healthcare and other issues, so we're staying on that," he said.

The congressman called on the White House to focus on work. "Let's get focused on our jobs and get it done, because the American people want us to address these issues, I can tell you that."

Byrne also weighed in on whether Jeff Sessions should remain as attorney general. The congressman said he has known Sessions, a former Alabama senator, for "almost four decades."

"He knows what he's doing. He's doing a very good job," Byrne said, adding, "I want all of us to let Jeff Sessions do his job."

The congressman added that he remains confident in Sessions. "I know he's getting his job done, but it's not helpful to the rest of us to keep going back, and back, and back to this. We need to make sure we're supporting him in what he's doing,"

Alabama lawmakers including Byrne spoke about their support for Sessions in a Wednesday report in Alabama Political Reporter. "No one is better suited to run the Department of Justice than Jeff Sessions," Byrne said.
