Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) will testify against Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-Ala.) appointment to President-elect Donald Trump’s Attorney General.
Booker explained why he decided to speak up:
“We’ve seen consistently Jeff Sessions as Sen. Jeff Sessions voting against everything from the Matthew Shepard Act, to voting against, or speaking out against, ideals around the Voting Rights Act, [to] taking measures against criminal justice reform. He has a posture and a positioning that I think represent a real danger to our country.”
Booker has spent much of his career as a senator supporting bipartisan legislation.
