The Left Has Lost its Mind: Cory Booker to Testify Against Sessions

(Before It's News)

The Democrats are losing it over Donald Trump’s presidency and his selections to fill his cabinet and other administrative positions.

In an unprecedented move, Senator Cory Booker (D – NJ) says he will testify against fellow Senator Jeff Sessions during Tuesday’s confirmation for Sessions to be Trump’s Attorney General.

According to CNN:

“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.”

The left has been doing everything they can to paint Sessions as a racist and a bigot, as Streiff wrote here earlier. Of course, there’s no irony to be found when it comes to the radical leftists President Obama has had in his administration for the past eight years.

Of course, there’s no irony to be found when it comes to the radical leftists President Obama has had in his administration for the past eight years. When Republicans brought up issues with Cass Sunstein or Van Jones advising the president they were told they were just racist and didn’t like the United States’ first black president.

As with other unprecedented acts the Democrats have engaged in — filibuster anyone? — they should be wary and more circumspect and remember that one day they could be back in the driver’s seat and will have to contend with this new precedent.
