The NAACP staged a sit-in at Sen. Jeff Sessions office in Mobile, Ala., saying it will stay he withdraws his nomination to be Attorney General or the group is arrested.
How pathetic the NAACP has become. They will do anything for donations, except actually help Black people of course
Cornell William Brooks, president and CEO of the organization, previously called Sessions “among the worst possible nominees to serve amidst some of the worst possible times for civil rights in recent memory.”
“As a matter of conscience and conviction, we can neither be mute nor mumble our opposition to Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions becoming Attorney General of the United States,” Brooks said. “Senator Sessions has callously ignored the reality of voter suppression but zealously prosecuted innocent civil rights leaders on trumped-up charges of voter fraud. As an opponent of the vote, he can’t be trusted to be the chief law enforcement officer for voting rights.”
Still playing the voter supression card? Really? Fact is Sessions would be a great AG, even former head of the FBI during Clinton’s presidency highly recommends Sessions
The campaign to rally support for Donald Trump’s pick to head the Justice Department is growing, with former FBI Director Louis Freeh, who served under President Bill Clinton, now joining the effort.
In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Freeh offered his “strong recommendation” that Senators confirm their colleague Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., as the next attorney general, defending his record on civil rights, which has become a key concern for critics.
“I have known Jeff since 1989 when we worked together as prosecutors on one of the most important civil rights cases investigated and prosecuted by the United States Department of Justice,” Freeh wrote. “[I] have always been greatly impressed with his commitment to the rule of law, his fair and balanced prosecutorial judgment, and his personal dedication to protecting civil rights.”
The very fact that the NAACP, which is nothing more than a left-wing group, opposes Sessions tells me he is supremely qualified
