Sen. Warren Says ‘No’ To Sessions As U.S. Attorney General

BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she’ll vote against President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama.

The Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday that his career has been defined by what she called “open hostility to civil rights, immigrants, and the rule of law.”

Warren also praised Sally Yates, the former acting attorney general of the United States.

Yates was fired by Trump on Monday after she publicly questioned the constitutionality of his refugee and immigration ban and refused to defend it in court.

Warren called the ban “illegal, unconstitutional and deeply immoral” and said it unlawfully targeted Muslims.

U.S. Sen. Edward Markey has also said he will vote against Sessions. The Massachusetts Democrat said he has no confidence Sessions is committed to justice for all Americans.

  1. this gal is pure fraud
    how the hell was she elected by otherwise bright people?
    she non-disclosed million line of credit with boa on senate disclosures!
    got into Harvard lying she was an Indian
    Massachusetts wake up

    1. Bright people? She was elected by some of the same ultra liberals in Mass. that kept sending Barney Frank to Washington. They aren’t that bright, obviously. She’s the biggest fraud in the Senate.

  2. Harvard Law’s affirmative action hire has spoken…if she was sitting in the constitutional law class of Alan Dersowitz she would be failed.

  3. Well at least Pocahontas and her no vote will most likely not even matter! They will use the nuclear option and he will be Attorney General.

  4. Pocahontas is an expert in immorality and the best practitioner of it.

  5. Nancy Fitch says:

    Too Bad Sen. Warren you lost
