Should Sessions be confirmed as attorney general?

Sessions was asked by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley how he would handle the Clinton probe.

"You've got the sanctuary cities that refuse to tell homeland security that they've got somebody that's committed a serious crime so they can be deported", Sessions stated on Tuesday.

The hearing for Mr Sessions, in line to be the country's top prosecutor and legal adviser to the president, was the first in a series this week for nominees to Mr Trump's Cabinet ahead of the January 20 inauguration. While being removed, the protester said, "Why am I getting taken out of here?"

Sessions has said he walked into the 1986 hearings unprepared for what he called an orchestrated smear job.

Jeff Sessions is being grilled by his Senate colleagues today in Washington during a confirmation hearing for Attorney General, lawyers in Philadelphia are on the record with serious concerns about his fitness for the office. And that's Sen. Sessions making a pretty notable promise about his tenure as attorney general if he's confirmed.

Sessions was referring to reported racist remarks that ultimately sank his nomination for USA district judge for the Southern District of Alabama in 1986. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) if he would be willing to prosecute the Russian hacking allegations-even if the investigation were to negatively affect Trump or members of his inner circle-Sessions deflected the question. "Communities across this country are concerned about whether they will be able to rely on the Department of Justice". "We've seen Jeff Sessions - that's Senator Jeff Sessions - consistently voting against or speaking out against key ideals of the Voting Rights Act, taking measures to try to block criminal justice reform", Booker said on MSNBC on Monday. I understand the lifelong scars born by women who are victims of assault and abuse. And he said he opposed banning Muslim immigrants as a religious group. The law was passed six years after President John F. Kennedy appointed his brother, Robert, as Attorney General.

The longtime Republican senator has denied repeatedly that he is a racist, or was a racist 30 years ago, despite his comments and weak defense of them during his hearing, which motivated members of the Senate to move quickly to deny him.

When Hayes mistakenly said that Sessions was a former senator, Booker corrected the host.
