Jeff Sessions Confirmation hearing disrupted by Leftist Thugs wearing KKK outfits

(USA TODAY) – WASHINGTON — Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, facing a barrage of challenges to his record on civil rights enforcement and questions about racial tolerance as President-elect Donald Trump’s attorney general nominee, on Tuesday rejected the “false caricature” that has long shadowed his public life and asserted that the Justice Department under his direction would “never falter in its obligation to protect the rights of every American, particularly those who are most vulnerable.’’

The first of the Trump administration’s most controversial nominees to appear for Senate confirmation, the 70-year-old former federal prosecutor and state attorney general arrived in the marble encrusted hearing room packed with protesters in an attempt to allay myriad grievances left in the wake of the nominee’s past racially charged statements and long anti-immigration record. Yet even before he could take his seat at the witness table, protesters wearing Ku Klux Klan costumes erupted with shouts of “white power,” before they were ushered out, the first clash of several pitting demonstrators against Capitol police. At least five others had to be dragged out through the course of the morning session, some yelling, “No Trump, no KKK, no racist USA.”
