Jeff Sessions, the first US senator to endorse Donald Trump, has been one of the President-elect's top supporters http://edition.cnn.com/2016/11/17/politics/jeff-sessions-racism-allegations/index.html?sr twpol111716jeff-sessions-racism-allegations1158AMVODtopLink&linkId 31262445 so it's no surprise that he is being considered as a potential Cabinet member -- defense secretary or attorney general. But with the new attention on Sessions -- and a potential Senate confirmation hearing looming -- old allegations of racism against the Alabama Republican are sure to haunt him. #JeffSessions #kkk #alabama

[FULL] Franken Suggests Donald Trump AG Pick Sessions Overstated Number of Civil Rights Cases He Worked On Al Franken, a Democrat from Minnesota, and Mr. Sessions tangle over the questionnaire that the attorney general nominee submitted to the committee as part of the confirmation process. At issue were a number of civil rights cases that Mr. Sessions said he worked on in Alabama. Mr. Franken suggests he exaggerated the number by claiming personal involvement in cases on which he merely had his name on court documents. Mr. Sessions denies that.

In this Majority Report clip, we watch a 1986 news clip about Jeff Sessions' committee hearings that ultimately denied him a federal judgeship based on racist comments he had made. He also has a long history of working against enhancing voting rights. His hearing to be confirmed as Trump's pick for Attorney General is tomorrow, despite official claims from the Office of Government Ethics that they have not been provided with all of the proper paperwork necessary to vet candidates. (Sessions likely does not fall into that category, as he is a sitting U.S. senator.)

Angela Rye and William Smith on Anderson Cooper 360 discuss fierce pressure facing senator Jeff Sessions', nominee for attorney general recent to join Trump administration.. NAACP President Cornell William Brooks and Members were arrested ,protesting Jeff Sessions' attorney general nomination. A group of more than 1,100 law school professors from across the country is sending a letter to Congress on Tuesday urging the Senate to reject the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general. https://docs.google.com/document/d/167Ci3pVqwzOUe7_e7itlpew1qGcTo0ZD5dNICIbLQWA/pub The letter, signed by professors from 170 law schools in 48 states, is also scheduled to run as a full-page newspaper ad aimed at members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will be holding confirmation hearings for Sessions on Jan. 10-11. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/more-than-1100-law-school-professors-nationwide-oppose-sessionss-nomination-as-attorney-general/2017/01/03/dbf55750-d1cc-11e6-a783-cd3fa950f2fd_story.html?utm_term .0d11348fae29 “We are convinced that Jeff Sessions will not fairly enforce our nation’s laws and promote justice and equality in the United States,” states the letter, signed by prominent legal scholars including Laurence H. Tribe of Harvard Law School, Geoffrey R. Stone of the University of Chicago Law School, Pamela S. Karlan of Stanford Law School and Erwin Chemerinsky of the University of California at Irvine School of Law. [Trump’s pick for attorney general is shadowed by race and history] The professors — from every state except North Dakota and Alaska, which has no law school — highlight the rejection of Sessions’s nomination to a federal judgeship more than 30 years ago. Robin Walker Sterling of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, one of the organizers of the letter, said that 1,000 professors signed on within 72 hours. “Clearly, there are many, many law professors who are very uneasy with the prospect of Attorney General Sessions, and they are willing to take a public stand in opposition to his nomination,” she said.
