Chuck Schumer: When Jeff Sessions Was Confirmed ‘It Turned My Stomach’

Host Rachel Maddow told Schumer she had been told by former Obama White House officials their biggest concern about the upcoming Trump presidency was Sessions heading the Department of Justice. Schumer concurred by responding that Sessions was “anti-immigrant” and had a bad record on civil and voting rights.

“When Jeff Sessions was passed, it turned my stomach,” Schumer said. “I don’t have anything against him personally. It’s known we here in that gym together in the morning but to have a man like this with his record on immigration, he’s almost certainly the most anti-immigrant senator of the hundred, on civil rights and voting rights he’s probably one of the top three or four against these sacred rights, civil rights, and voting rights, he doesn’t belong there and I think a lot of Republicans know it.”

  1. And the Democrats wonder why they are in free fall. A statement like that against a person he has worked with for 30 years is despicable. I wonder how he would feel about a senator that broke rules and pulled strings to get someone into the U.S. that ended up molesting a child. With that was Schumer that did that. But I imagine he got a good nights sleep despite some child’s life being ruined as a result of his pulling strings. A real Big shot. How more pathetic can you be?
