As I explained in today’s Open Thread, there is nothing Democratic Senators can do to block the confirmation of Jeff Sessions (R-KKK) as Attorney General and head of the renamed Department of Injustice. Democrats changed the Senate Rules in 2013 to require only a simple majority to confirm cabinet appointees and judges (except SCOTUS), because Republicans were blocking them all. However, at least some brave protestors disrupted Sessions’ confirmation hearing.

"This is the acid test. If Senate Republicans confirm Sessions, they won’t stand up to the Fuhrer over anything else."

Yup. You got that right.

Limiting the minority to 4 testifying is horrible--kudos to Lewis and Booker for honoring their oaths of office and may they persuade all committee members to follow their example.

PS--I give kudos to HELP for delaying DeVos hearings to 1/17 to get full ethics info. first.

Sorry, but Drumpf voters think it's quite normal to pick a man like Sessions for the Department od Injustice. In the next four years they won't notice much difference with how was before anyway, but members of a minority, any minority, will feel the brunt of it. But then they didn't vote for him, did they.

Resist every day because it won't be over for four very long years.

Sessions will be approved because most of congress is made up of bastards.

I am glad there were protestors!  I have signed a dozen petitions to the Senate asking them not to confirm him.  I know they will, though.

Glad to see the Repubs BLOCKING TRUMP TOO!
LOVED IT WHEN CHUCK SCHUMER PUT IT RIGHT BACK INTO TURTLE MAN'S FACE THIS IS WHAT YOU GO BY, it was the paper he used when Obama was elected and taking office.
Obamo gave a Great Speech and I hope TRUMP LIstened to it! Much applied to him. I liked when he said you never know about another person unless you climb into his skin and walk around in it. We had Immigrants come to america and that's why America has grown and became what it is..
We will Miss Obama!
Thank you TomCat

It's so unfortunate that he will be confirmed regardless. But, wow, he sure is a lying piece of work and a total dork. He fits well with the crew of scumbags he will be joining.

One thing we can all be sure of is that the political reptile of "Republicus spineless rightwingus oportunistas" will hang on to power to the last thread, regardless of the damage they cause to the country and it's people. Just remember mid terms and RESIST!!!!!

It'd be just fine with me if God decided to "smite" a few people....
Obama will go down in history as one of the best ever presidents - I hope Trump just goes down.

Brent B....Go into the Senate voting records and see how he's voted on issues. (It's public access website) Google his performance historically. I know many conservatives that are against this appointment as well. It's not a lib thing. They're moderate republicans and not the alt-right group. Bear in mind, as well, Trump was a 'Lib' until just a few years ago.........

"If Senate Republicans confirm Sessions, they won’t stand up to the Fuhrer over anything else."

I read earlier today that Sessions said he would have no trouble standing up to Trump if he did something wrong or unconstitutional. So who is going to be the gate keeper on this one? I don't believe it for a second.

It will be interesting to see if Republicans try to close the gallery to observers other than the media, members of Congress, and the legal beagles for the remainder of the hearings.
