Code Pink Protester Interrupts Sessions Confirmation Hearing

BY:

A protester affiliated with the group Code Pink loudly interrupted the Senate confirmation hearing for Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) on Monday morning and had to be forcefully removed from the room.

Sessions, who appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee as President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for attorney general, was being introduced by his colleague Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) when the protester in the room stood up and began shouting.

The woman appeared to be dressed as a pink Statue of Liberty and waved a sign that read, "Support Civil Rights. Stop Sessions. CodePink.Org." It was unclear what the protester was saying as she was yelling over Collins.
