Sen. Cory Booker to Testify Against Jeff Sessions at AG Confirmation Hearings

CNN’s Manu Raju is reporting that Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) will testify against Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) at his confirmation hearings for Trump’s attorney general.

Raju tweeted: “Booker prepared to make history in testimony against Sessions: First time ever a sitting senator will testify against another for Cabinet.”

Booker also confirmed that he will be testifying during an appearance on All in with Chris Hayes:

I hope more senators step up to the plate. We cannot sit by and watch a man with a racist past become our next AG. civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis and Cedric Richmond are also slated to testify at the hearings.

Sessions’ credibility is going to take a serious hit with Lewis, who nearly died fighting for racial justice and equality.
