New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is only the latest Democrat to slam U.S. Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions as unsuitable for the position.
The Alabama Republican was one of the first nominations President Elect Donald Trump made after assembling his transition team but almost immediately liberals began dredging up discredited or unsubstantiated past attacks on the Senator in an attempt to force Trump to rescind the offer.
For Gillibrand’s part, the New York Senator insisted she has “very grave concerns” over the possibility that Sessions could become the nation’s top law enforcement official because in her view he isn’t sensitive enough to victims of sexual assault.
“If he doesn’t understand the basic tenets of what sexual assault is, I don’t think he has the background and knowledge he will need to be attorney general,” Gillibrand said according to The Hill.
Her fears arose after a story about a woman who was purportedly groped allegedly prompted Sessions to say he didn’t call that sexual assault. But Sessions denied the story saying the report was “completely inaccurate” and that it “misrepresented my views.”
Gillibrand went even farther in her verbal attack on Sessions calling him “dangerous.”
His comments, the New Yorker said, are “so offensive and so dangerous and if he doesn’t understand the basics of what sexual assault is, I don’t know how he can be attorney general.”
Several other Democrats, such as extreme leftist Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren, have also denounced Sessions saying he is not a suitable pick for the AG job.
Still, Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (West Virginia) and moderate Republicans Susan Collins (Maine) and Jeff Flake (Arizona) have also endorsed the Alabamian for the AG job.
Supporters of Sessions have noted that it is likely that he’ll go after so-called “sanctuary cities” for breaking immigration laws and reminded everyone that in the past he pointed out that no foreigner has a “right” to immigrate into the U.S.
