The King - Sessions - Warren Letter

Here is part of the letter Senator Warren read in violation of Senate Rule XIX:

“Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts,” King wrote in the cover page of her nine-page letter opposing Sessions’s nomination, which failed. “Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters. For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.”

You can read the rest @

And here is the pertinent part of the text of the rule:

Senate Rule XIX
2. No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.

Do you think Senator Warren broke this rule? I do. Do you think the circumstances justify breaking the rule? I do not.

Ms. King's letter reveals she is incapable of forgiveness. And Senator Warren's use of it reveals she does not think people are capable of change.

Or did I miss something?

And beyond all that, the DNC under the guidance of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz and possibly with the knowledge of candidate Hillary Clinton appears to have thwarted the will of the voters in that the DNC appears to have stolen the primary election from Senator Bernie Sanders. This is a far greater wrong than voter intimidation. Has Ms. King or any other person of stature outside the Republican sphere condemned the DNC for their apparent crime? No.

So, what goes around comes around. If you want JUSTICE (and not merely for the other party to lose), you must demand JUSTICE every time evil raises its ugly head.
