Trump AG pick Jeff Sessions is being interrogated by the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning and the Democrats on the panel are doing their best to smear him.
That’s what liberals do during every single hearing like this.
Attack Republicans for being racist monsters.
It isn’t working.
Sessions clearly did his homework and he has handled silly questions from several Democrats very well.
The interesting thing about this situation is that many liberal senators who are now opposing Sessions have praised him in the past.
Including Dick Durbin who tried to embarrass Sessions during the hearing today.
Another one of the hypocritical senators is Cory Booker who has now changed his mind and is testifying against Sessions.
From The Daily Caller:
New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker, who will break Senate tradition and testify against the confirmation of a colleague for a cabinet post, once praised GOP Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for working with him to honor civil rights activists.
Booker will testify against Sessions’ confirmation as attorney general. He told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Monday night that he has serious concerns about Sessions’ civil rights record.
Just last year in February 2016, Sessions partnered with Booker to award the Congressional Gold Medal to those who participated in the 1965 Voting Rights March from Selma to Montgomery, Ala.
Last year, Booker thought Sessions was solid enough on race relations to present an award with him.
Today? He’s concerned.
Hypocrisy from the left. What else is new?
Jeff Sessions is likely going to be confirmed as our next Attorney General and that’s definitely a good thing for the country.
