Senator Al Franken used the confirmation hearings of Jeff Sessions to trash the prospective attorney general. Then, Senator Ted Cruz showed up, and things changed FAST. You have to see this, Franken gets destroyed by Ted Cruz!
From Conservative Tribune:
During Sen. Jeff Sessions’ confirmation hearing Tuesday for attorney general, fellow Sen. Al Franken pummeled him with a litany of accusations, essentially accusing him of having never actually prosecuted dozens of desegregation cases.
“Now, you originally said that you personally handled three of these cases, but these lawyers say that you had no substantive involvement,” Franken said, reportedly referencing a column in The Wall Street Journal by an attorney.
This line of questioning was not appreciated by Sen. Ted Cruz, who later slammed Franken for having even insinuated that Sessions had lied.
Franken later said that he was just doing his job in being tough on Sessions. I don’t see how using false accusations against someone is Franken’s job…but we already know that Franken has a corrupt past.
