Al Franken: I’m Voting Against Sessions; He Won’t Protect the Rights of All Americans

‘I just don’t feel comfortable that he would protect all Americans’ rights’

EXCERPT:

FRANKEN: "Also, you have to remember there is a difference between what the President-elect said in the past and what he subsequently said and what he said in the present and then what he’ll say in the future." 
SCARBOROUGH: "Even on the Muslim ban, he's moved on that." 
FRANKEN: "Yeah. We've got Jeff Sessions and those hearings said he would not do Muslim ban. And we got him to commit — my colleagues got him to commit to a number of things like that that were sort of at odds with what the President-elect had been saying during the campaign in of late." 
BRZEZINSKI: "You going to vote for him or against?" 
FRANKEN: "I’m going to vote against Senator Sessions. I just don’t feel comfortable that he would protect all Americans’ rights."
