WATCH: Republicans Censor Senator Elizabeth Warren In Floor Speech On Sessions

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was cut off from speaking on the floor of the U.S. Senate after she spoke out about the racist past of Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) claimed that Warren “impugns the motives and conduct” of Sessions when she said he “used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote.”

Warren pointed out that she was quoting civil rights icon Coretta Scott King, who opposed Sessions nomination to the federal court in 1986.

McConnell ignored her, and had her microphone cut off as the Republican majority continued to use thug tactics in the U.S. Senate.

From King’s letter:

“Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts,” King wrote in the cover page of her nine-page letter opposing Sessions’s nomination, which failed. “Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters. For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.”

Sessions was denied that federal judgeship, but is now likely to become the head of the entire Department of Justice under Donald Trump.

    Hatch is a sanctimonious old prune. Read the letter!

    • Tipi Rick

      You have no shame as well as Senator Warren. Playing the race card? Really?

      • Lisa Payne

        Lol, I have no shame. Mrs. King wrote the letter, it’s her card. And it needs to be read as often as Sessions walks into a room.

        • Tipi Rick

          Keep it up. The country is rejecting you and your party. You’ll find out again in 2018 and be as shocked and surprised as you were in 2016. You and your party are simply out of touch with The Electorate.

          • rnrstar

            A majority of people in this country disagree with you. You only hold the powers of authority by a technicality. It won’t last forever. You power and your ability to retain that power is waning and you represent the death throes of your kind.

          • Tipi Rick

            This is not a democracy. We are a representative republic. The Founders made it so to specifically avoid the tyranny of the majority, an evil that they knew destroys all democracies over time. Go back to Civics 101 and read The Federalist Papers and Anti-Federalist Papers. If you think my party is on the wane, just observe the recent history. We took The House, then The Senate, then The Presidency and next will take over the Supreme Court. You might want to look at how many elective offices your party has lost in the past 10 years. It’s approaching 1500 nation-wide. Your party is no longer a national party, it’s just a very small regional party definitely on the wane. Good riddance. The Electoral College is not a mere “technicality”. It protects us from the tyranny of the majority.

    I just watched this drama play out live on C-SPAN 2. Elizabeth Warren and the Democrats ought to be ashamed playing the race card like this, but they are without shame and have abandoned every shred of honor befitting high public office. This will cost them even more than the 10 of 25 up for re-election in 2018. Shame upon them. Thanks Elizabeth, you couldn’t keep your head from exploding, just like your cohorts in the streets. Together you’re aborting your Democrat Party of Death. Good riddance.

  • Tipi Rick

    Found that out the hard way, didn’t you. The majority doesn’t matter in a republic. This is not a democracy. Go back to Civics 101 young lady.

    • Lisa Payne

      Read Mrs. King’s letter old man.

      • Tipi Rick

        Get a grip on reality and civility or you, like Elizabeth Warren, will continue to lead a pathetically pointless political life.

        • Lisa Payne

          I was responding in kind to your demeaning use of “young lady.” Are you too scared to read Mrs. King’s letter?

          • Tipi Rick

            The letter is not the issue. Civility, decorum, respect and honor are. You need to avoid racism at every opportunity. We on the right are tired of being called racists (deplorables, homophobes, Islamophobes, religious bigots, xenophobes, etc.) reflexively when we disagree with you and if you even sense you are losing yet another debate in the war of ideas. Your side is finding out we hit back when hit, as so well demonstrated by President Trump v. the MSM. It’s how we have to deal with bullies.

          • Alex

            The letter is absolutely at issue. This is the matter for which Elizabeth Warren was censured. The letter cites Sessions efforts to prevent black Americans from registering to vote. Perhaps you should read it yourself.

            http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/02/08/read-letter-coretta-scott-king-wrote-opposing-sessions/97634920/

            Those efforts along with his tacit approval of the Ku Klux Klan, should be heard on the Senate floor as proof he is unfit for the role of America’s top prosecutor. At no point were you called a racist, or any of your other litany of other groups of delporables you reflexively defended yourself against. Your side may be in power, but that does not mean it will continue forever. The battle of Trump v. Reality will come to an end. Your side is diminishing every year as old men pass away, and little girls are still growing up.

          • Tipi Rick

            Hysterical.

          • Tipi Rick

            Seriously? Have you looked at the Democrat dinosaurs in your leadership? Have you listened to them? I’m sorry to say it but Pelosi & Waters yesterday were showing signs of senility. Your party has no youthful bench, mine has. The top three Democrats in leadership are 76 (Pelosi), 77 (Steny Hoyer) and 76 (Jim Clyburn). The average age of the Democratic party leadership is 76. The top three Republican leaders, in contrast, are 46 (Paul Ryan), 51 (Kevin McCarthy) and 51 (Steve Scalise). Donald Trump is a very youthful and healthy-living 70. The average age of the House Republican leadership is 47. The average age of the House Democratic leadership is 76. The NAACP now opposes Sen. Jeff Sessions…..though in 2009 they honored him with their Governmental Award of Excellence. They and the Democrats are dihonorably playing politics with completely false . accusations and pathetic associations. Jeff Sessions will be confirmed and you will not be forgotten or forgiven.

  • Larry

    Wake up you fools! If Session’s is confirmed, WHO is playing the race card?

  • Taters

    Senator Warren is a pure disgrace. She was censored on the Senate floor for disparaging a sitting Senator, Jeff Sessions while using the letters of deceased Icon Martin Luther King to attack him. This woman wants to be President and doesn’t even know the rules of the Senate? Right!!
