Senator Sessions (R-AL) is slowly replacing Senator McConnell as the biggest a-hole in Congress. From his disgusting efforts at suppressing minority voters to his soft embrace of the Ku Klux Klan, Sessions typifies the intellectually and morally bankrupt state of today’s Republican Party.

Well, Senator Franken (D-MN) is not going to take it!

Showing that democrats may actually not need stem cells to get a backbone, the funnyman and democratic senator vociferously questioned Senator Jeff Sessions, Trump’s pick for Attorney General, on his disturbing comments on civil rights.

Franken commenced the hearing by bringing up an interview Sessions gave in 2009, when he became the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sessions, according to Franken quoted Sessions as saying “We’re not going to misrepresent any nominee’s record and we’re not going to lie about it.” Franken then devoted the next ten minutes to exposing Sessions for contradicting his own record.

He claimed this was more than other prosecutors had done at the time, more than 30 years ago—a low bar for someone claiming to be a civil rights advocate.

On Sessions’ destruction of civil rights, Franken concluded by saying the Justice Department “is facing real challenges, whether it’s protecting civil rights or defending national security, and our country needs an attorney general who doesn’t misrepresent or inflate their level of involvement on any given issue.”
