Senator Who Testified Against Sessions Praised Him For His Work Honoring Civil Rights Leaders

Democrats are in full obstructionist mode against Donald Trump’s administration, and he hasn’t even taken office yet!

They’ve decided to make it very difficult for Trump’s nominees to get through their confirmation, using a lot of “obstructionist” tactics that they’ve attacked Republicans for using.

Their first target is Senator Jeff Sessions, the nominee to be Attorney General.

The left is attacking him as a racist and a bigot, despite evidence directly to the contrary. Sessions actually went to war against the Klan in Alabama and helped send a leader of the racist organization to death row.

But of course, Democrats aren’t letting facts get in the way. They are so against his nomination that Senator Democrat Cory Booker from New Jersey took the unusual step of testifying against his fellow Senator. Booker claims that Sessions’ “bad” record on civil rights makes him unfit for Attorney General.

But just a few months ago, Booker was singing a very different tune about Sessions. In fact, Booker praised Sessions for his work for to honor Civil Rights pioneers:

Via Free Beacon:

“I am humbled to be able to to participate here in paying tribute to some of the extraordinary Americans, whose footsteps paved the way for me and my generation,” Booker said at the Capitol Visitor Center last year. “I feel blessed and honored to have partnered with Sen. Sessions in being the Senate sponsors of this important award.”

Booker was speaking at the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony, at which Sessions was present. The award is presented by Congress to those whose achievements have had a profound impact on American history and culture, and was being given to the 1965 Foot Soldiers for persevering to help see the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

What changed in the intervening months? Politics. That’s it. Booker is exposing himself as an opportunist and a man of zero principle.

Jeff Sessions has had an exemplary record as a public servant, a fact that Booker openly acknowledged. And yet, because he’s decided to serve in the Trump administration, Sessions must now be attacked and smeared!
