Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) appeared on Fox and Friends on Thursday to discuss Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees.
Fox News’ Steve Doocy asked Manchin if he would be supporting Trump’s Attorney General nominee, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).
“Jeff Sessions has my vote,” Manchin told Doocy. “I’ve known him for six years, we’ve been friends, we talk about an array of things. I have never detected, never one ounce of detection, that Jeff Sessions is what they have said. And with that, I think he handled himself well.”
During the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing regarding Sessions’ nomination, Democrats attempted to paint the Alabama Republican as a racist. Fellow Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) broke with tradition to testify against Sessions, despite previously having worked with Session on Civil Rights legislation.
Manchin said of Booker’s testimony, “You know Cory is a good person, and I know Cory, and that just doesn’t seem like the Cory I knew.”
