On Tuesday, the NAACP staged protests across Alabama against Sen. Jeff Sessions, President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Attorney General. They were protesting a previous remark Session had made about the organization.
Some Members of Congress and far-left media pundits have tried to paint Sessions as a racist, in an attempt to block his nomination.
Now, those who know Sessions best are pushing back against these outlandish alligations. William Smith has known Sessions for 20 years and worked with Sessions for nearly a decade as the first black chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Smith told CBS Evening News in an interview, “The people making these allegations haven’t spent any time with Senator Sessions. You won’t find anyone who’s spent an amount of time with Senator Sessions who would make these allegations. NO ONE.”
