Sen Cory Booker Exploits Sessions Hearings To Advance Political Career

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) plans to testify against Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) at the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings in an effort to advance his political career.

Booker claims to oppose Sessions as Attorney General because of his concerns on policy issues but the real reason is politics.

Booker’s testimony is breaking precedent – he will be the first Senator in office to testify against a colleague.

ABC News reports:

He will be the first sitting senator to testify against a colleague at a Senate confirmation hearing for a member of the president’s cabinet, according to his office.

“I do not take lightly the decision to testify against a Senate colleague,” Booker said in a statement. “But the immense powers of the Attorney General combined with the deeply troubling views of this nominee is a call to conscience.”

Booker will be joined by civil rights leader, Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., and the leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., among others, in testifying on the second day of Sessions’ Senate confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill tomorrow.

Previously, Booker co-sponsored legislation with Sessions to give the Congressional Gold Medal to the 1965 civil rights marchers in Alabama.

However, since Booker is being mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2020, political expediency rules.

Such political grandstanding by Booker will harm race relations because it reinforces the propaganda that Sessions is a racist. But the adverse consequences to the nation doesn’t matter to Booker, only getting national headlines and boosting his name recognition with the radical left does.
