Corey Booker wants to be front and center today and if that means smearing a fellow Senate member, so be it.
They say it’s unprecedented because it is! It is outrageous, and a warning sign about the incoming administration and their dangerous and blatant disregard for the truth, integrity, and honesty.
So in spite of the FACT that when Senator Sessions was a prosecutor he successfully convicted two KKK members resulting in one receiving life in prison and the other the death penalty and the KKK was bankrupted as a result of a lawsuit, on Tuesday the Democrats will attempt to smear Senator Sessions and will be calling him a racist and try to associate him with the KKK.
This would be the first time in Senate history that a sitting senator will testify against another sitting senator for a Cabinet post during a confirmation.
“I do not take lightly the decision to testify against a Senate colleague,” Booker said. “But the immense powers of the attorney general combined with the deeply troubling views of this nominee is a call to conscience.”
Sessions’ confirmation hearings, which begin Tuesday, are expected to raise additional questions on old allegations of racism from his past. When Sessions was a 39-year-old US attorney in Alabama, he was denied a federal judgeship because the Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony during hearings in March and May 1986 that Sessions had made racist remarks and called the NAACP and ACLU “un-American.”
Booker called Sessions’ record “concerning in a number of ways,” citing his opposition to bipartisan criminal justice reform and immigration reform, criticism of the Voting Rights Act and his “failure to defend the civil rights of women, minorities, and LGBT Americans.”

This is just grandstanding bullsh**. Booker does not care one bit about Sen. Sessions. He’s trying to make a name for himself and become more known nationally so he can run for president. What a waste of time.
The Democrats are going to use bigotry racism and hate to smear a very good man in Sessions today. Prepare for the propaganda show. Using words and parts of stories to create false narratives. This is what they do.
I don’t remember Booker saying anything about former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan Robert Byrd who just so happens to hold the record for the longest filibuster in history against the 1964 Civil Rights Act so blacks couldn’t get right. Talk about hypocrisy.
