Sessions Hearing for AG Post Interrupted by Protesters


Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) was on Capitol Hill all day Tuesday for his Senate confirmation hearing to be attorney general in President-elect Donald Trump's Cabinet.

Protesters from Code Pink and Black Lives Matter interrupted the hearing multiple times. One group of protesters accused Sessions of being a racist dressing up as members of the Ku Klux Klan.

Sessions and the Senate panel generally ignored the protesters.

The confirmation hearing is scheduled to continue into Wednesday.
