Sen. Cruz Slams Warren for 'Slanderous' Attack on Sessions

Sen. Cruz Slams Warren for 'Slanderous' Attack on Sessions”

Her crime was simple and her punishment symbolic: Warren had meant to read the letter that the late Coretta Scott King sent to the Senate in 1986 to oppose the nomination of Sessions, then Alabama attorney general, to be a federal judge.

Warren quoted from a letter that Coretta Scott King wrote in opposition to Sessions, an Alabama Republican, during his attempted confirmation for a federal judgeship 30 years ago. "Senator Warren said 'Senator Sessions has used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens'".

"When Senator Warren read her statement, she was told that she could no longer participate in this debate over Senator Sessions' nomination which I regard as an outrage", Sanders said on the Senate floor.

Warren was warned twice by Republicans for violating the Senate rules against impugning another senator.

The Senate voted 52 to 47 on Wednesday to confirm Sessions as attorney general. "To see this body act as it did tonight is disappointing to me", the New Jersey Democrat said on the Senate floor Tuesday night, The Hill reports.

"Look, the main thing is that millions of people are now reading Coretta Scott King's letter", Warren responded, highlighting the importance and relevance of King's words. "Nevertheless, she persisted." Little did he know that his words would quickly became a rallying cry in support of Warren. Sessions is now a USA senator who's Trump's pick for attorney general.

Following intense debate, the 52-47 vote was virtually split along party lines. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., "selective enforcement". Her point was more specific: McConnell and the Republican senators did not refute the claims King made about Sessions' civil rights record.

If that's not germane to the confirmation hearings of the nominee of attorney general of the United States, nothing is.
