Condoleezza Rice, the first female Secretary of State who served under President George W. Bush, has come out to show her support for Sen. Jeff Sessions’ appointment to Attorney General under the new Trump administration.
Sen. Sessions has his confirmation hearings Tuesday and Wednesday.
Via Politico: Rice, the first African-American woman to serve as secretary of state, wrote in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that Sessions has worked to rectify the “prejudice and injustice against the descendants of slaves” in Alabama and noted that he was a key force behind the effort to award civil rights leader Rosa Parks the Congressional Gold Medal. The former secretary of state labeled Sessions a “friend” and someone she “greatly” admired.
Rice wrote in recommending Sessions for Attorney General: “He is a man who is committed to justice and knows that law and order are necessary to guarantee freedom and liberty,” she wrote in her letter. “I know that Sen. Sessions will uphold the laws of our great country and will work to ensure that every person here in the United States is given the voice that is deserved.”
Sessions had previously been turned down for a federal judgeship in 1986. He has come under controversy since he oversaw cases with underlying racial tensions which didn’t always have a result which Liberals agreed with. A Sessions critic Janai Nelson, of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund said in a statement: “Sen. Sessions is too divisive, too extreme and incapable of protecting the interests and safety of all Americans,”.
Sessions has proven himself to pursue justice, while his critics maintain he is a racist. He prosecuted a KKK Grand Wizard and oversaw his execution, disproving such claims to be utterly ludicrous.
Liberals will do anything to paint Sessions as an evil man, a Liberal writer claimed Sessions was using his Asian granddaughter sitting on his lap as a political photo-op to prove he wasn’t racist. As usual, they go low.
