During Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) nomination hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, former Chief Counsel for the Senate Judiciary, William Smith, appeared on Fox Business to discuss Sessions’ record.
Stuart Varney asked Smith if Sessions was the racist that Democrats were trying to make him out to be.
“Jeff Sessions is absolutely not a racist. He is a kind, honest, honorable man,” Smith told Varney. “The fact that these people are here trying to mischaracterize his record will not go over well with the American people. This is not going over well. Without any facts, they have no facts to demonstrate Jeff Sessions is a racist. So they should stop the smear campaign and go on to something else.”
Varney then asked Smith about Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) testifying against Sessions.
Smith accused Booker of having a double standard, citing Booker’s work with Sessions to award Civil Rights activist the Congressional Gold Medal.
“I’ve known Senator Sessions a long time. I’ve worked with him a long time, over 20 years – never seen any indication of racial bias,” Smith concluded.
