Cory Booker: Jeff Sessions Ain't AG Material!

Sen. Cory Booker and many others oppose Jeff Session as the Attorney General.

Today is the confirmation hearings of the Attorney General. A controversial senator from the state of Alabama is the pick for the position. But his neo-Confederate ties, his past statements and his reaction towards the current issues in a post-Obama America are under fire.

Democrats are determined to fight against Republicans. They may lose this fight after the 113th Session pulled the "nuclear option" when it came to confirmation hearings. The 115th Session will quickly confirm nominees in this Republican controlled senate. They will now have the power to play moves they've longed complained the Democrats done during the eight years of Barack Obama's term.

New Jersey Democratic senator Cory Booker will testify against Alabama Republican senator Jeff Sessions in an attempt to block his nomination as the Attorney General of the United States.

Republicans faced criticism after they said they'll swiftly confirm fuhrer Donald J. Trump's picks for his cabinet and the federal courts.

At the Judiciary Committee, Booker will say that Session's record on civil rights and immigration will not live up to the principles of his predecessors.

The NAACP, the ACLU, many LGBT groups and immigration rights groups are opposing the nomination.

"I'm breaking a pretty long Senate tradition," said Booker when he was on All In with Chris Hayes.

"We've seen Jeff Sessions that's Senator Jeff Sessions --- consistently voting against or speaking out against key ideals of the Voting Rights Act, taking measures to try to block criminal justice reform."

Session was called "a threat to desegregation and the Voting Rights Act" by the NAACP.
The fuhrer and the squinty eyed bigot who he wants as the Attorney General.
So far Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) are strongly opposed to the nomination and will vote against him. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) signaled the same.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) are cautious about Sessions as well. Scott as the only Black senator who votes as a rank-and-file Republican had said that Sessions will get his vote after a "special emphasis". He is going to remind Sessions that his vote will be cast on the answers that are relevant to the current environment.

Given the time of racial and societal unrest, Scott did voice a bit of concern about the nominees.

Republicans demonized Eric Holder and his successor Loretta Lynch. Holder and Lynch are African American and they were attacked on their credentials and race by many agitators. Sessions was one of those agitators.

Fuhrer Trump, vice fuhrer Mike Pence and the beady eyed squinty bigot Jeff Sessions are a match made in Hell.
