Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: December of 2016
Categories: Jeff Sessions & Donald Trump
Senator Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump's pick for Attorney General, didn't truthfully answer a question about "any unsuccessful candidacies you have had for elective office or unsuccessful nominations for appointed offices" on his questionnaire for the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sessions neglected to inform the committee that he was previously denied a Federal judgeship in the 1980's after racist statements he made came to light.
