Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) during his confirmation hearing on Tuesday about the Supreme Court’s ruling regarding same-sex marriage.
“Supreme Court has ruled on that. The dissents dissented vigorously. But it was five to four. And five justices on the Supreme Court, the majority of the court, has established the definition of marriage for the entire United States of America. And I will follow that decision,” Sessions told Feinstein.
Feinstein followed up by asking Sessions if he thought Roe v. Wade is settled law.
“I would follow that law,” Sessions responded.
