Jeff Sessions’ confirmation hearing for attorney general got off to a real dramatic start. Instead of asking some relevant thoughtful questions, Democrats slandered Jeff Sessions and ridiculed Donald Trump.
As the “show” was already on, Sessions was asked one SICK question if he has been given an award by the Ku Klux Klan. But isn’t it ignorant, considering that Jeff Sessions is the man behind the Klan’s bankrupt in Alabama?
Liberty Writers reports, Sessions prosecuted Henry Francis Hays, a leader of the KKK who abducted and killed Michael Donald, a black teenager. Sessions insisted on the death penalty for Hays. When he was later elected the state Attorney General, Sessions followed through and made sure Henry Hays was executed. The successful prosecution of Hays also led to a $7 million civil judgment against the Klan, effectively breaking the back of the KKK in Alabama.
Chris Galanos, the former Mobile district attorney on the case said,
“securing Henry Hays’s conviction was a long, involved process, and the resources Sessions provided helped break the case wide open.”
Knowing all of the details of Session’s history against racism, Senator Richard Blumenthal still didn’t hesitate to ask Sessions if he has ever been given an award by the Klan.
After the question was asked, you can hear the courtroom audience gasp, but Sessions didn’t skip a beat. Jeff Sessions simply said,
“WELL, I WON’T RECEIVE IT FROM HENRY HAYS, I’LL TELL YOU THAT! HE NO LONGER EXISTS!”
Well, I no longer doubt that Senator Sessions will be a great Attorney General!
