Senate votes to shut up Elizabeth Warren – Politico
The Senate voted late Tuesday to tell Sen. Elizabeth Warren to sit down — and shut up.The Republican-controlled chamber voted 49-43 to uphold a ruling that the Massachusetts Democrat violated Senate rules that prohibit impugning another senator as she delivered a lengthy speech against the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as the nation’s attorney general.The issue: During her remarks, Warren referred to a letter written by Coretta Scott King and sent to the Senate in 1986, when the chamber was debating whether to confirm Sessions to a lifetime appointment on the federal bench.In her letter, first reported by the Washington Post, King urged the Senate three decades ago to reject Sessions’ bid to become a judge.“Mr. Sessions has used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens in the district he now seeks to serve as a federal judge,” King wrote in her letter back then, which Warren read on the Senate floor Tuesday night. “This simply cannot be allowed to happen.”But as Warren said those words, Republicans took offense. First, she was warned by the presiding officer — at the time, Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) — that she was violating Senate rules against impugning another senator.Warren protested, saying she was merely repeating the words of King. But she was allowed to continue to talk, so she did.
Two things are happening here. #1 is that Pocahontas is posing and preening for a Presidential nomination 4 years from now because she knows that the Liberals in this country are actually dumb enough to vote for a lying fraud like herself.
#2… There are some very, very, very bad people in D.C. that do not want Jeff Sessions coming after them as the AG. Some are Republicans. Many more are Democrats.
