Senators meet to approve U.S. attorney general Jeff Sessions

She read out loud from Yates' memo declaring she did not find Trump's immigration order to be lawful, then referenced the so-called Saturday Night Massacre, when two top Justice Department officials resigned over an order from President Richard Nixon.

"I object to the senator disparaging a fellow member of the committee here in his absence", Cornyn said.

Other Democratic members criticized Sessions' response to Trump's unsubstantiated claim that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election.

Simpson says knowing where Senator Sessions stands on issues that impact the civil rights of groups is key to understanding his qualifications for the job.

He "is the intellectual godfather of the president's policies", she said.

Sessions called the Supreme Court's redefinition of marriage "beyond breathtaking".

After a day of delays, Sen. Senators voting for Sessions should hold him to the same standard. Not the president's attorney.
