In the previous confirmation hearings Attorney General Nominee Jeff Sessions said, “he would follow the rulings of the Supreme Court,” in spite of saying in 2015, that the SCOTUS ruling in favor of marriage equality “goes beyond what I consider to be the realm of reality” and in 2009 voting against the “Matthew Sheppard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.”
The First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) which would essentially make it a “right” to discriminate against LGBTs. is also about to be reintroduced into Congress where it is sure to pass and Trump has already promised to sign it into law within his first 100 days of power. Given how many of his heinous promises he’s kept already, there is no doubt this will happen!
According to NBC News “Not only does Sessions vocally support FADA, he was one of the bill’s original sponsors. Attorneys General rarely come straight from Congress, putting Sessions in the unique position of being tasked with enforcing his own controversial law in a fair and unbiased manner.”
Sessions record on civil rights, gay rights, and women’s issues like voting NO on reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, makes it incomprehensible that he was nominated in the first place.
Last night Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates for “betrayal” because she refused to defend his executive order banning Muslims from entering the country.
Sally Yates had the courage of her convictions and stood up for our Constitutional principles of freedom of religion and equal justice under the law. Jeff Sessions will be nothing more than Trump’s Attorney General bitch!
