Franken: Sessions Has Done Nothing To Disqualify Him From Being Attorney General

On Tuesday, Sen. Jeff Sessions testified at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on his nomination to be attorney general in the Trump administration.

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn) appeared on MSNBC’s “For the Record” where Greta Van Susteren asked Franken if Sessions had he done anything during his time in the Senate that would make Sessions not qualified for the job of Attorney General.

“No,” Franken told Van Susteren. Franken’s only issue with Sessions seems to be that Sessions has taken different positions on issues from those Franken held.

When pressed Franken told Van Susteren he had not made a decision on supporting Sessions.
