PROGRESSIVE INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM: “Ted Cruz vs. ACLU at Jeff Sessions Confirmation Hearing” / TYT Politics ☮

Ted Cruz sat steely-eyed as David Cole of the ACLU and Cornell Brooks of the NAACP criticized Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) for his record on voting rights, women’s rights, and ethics. The Senator and former presidential candidate then used his questioning time to grill Cole on what Cruz viewed as a one-sided account of Sessions’ record as an Alabama District Attorney in his previous tenure with the Department of Justice.

Sessions was rejected as a federal judge in 1986 because of that tenure, but after this defeat, Alabama voters rewarded him by electing him at their attorney general, and then their U.S. Senator. Now Sessions, the first U.S. Senator to endorse Donald Trump for president, is Trump’s pick for U.S. Attorney General.
