Protesters Interrupt Jeff Sessions' Senate Confirmation Hearing
A number of protests broke out during the Senate confirmation hearings Tuesday for Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) as attorney general.
As he was answering a question from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) about keeping open the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, Sessions paused as two protesters stood up and began shouting.
A woman appeared to be shouting, "No Trump, No KKK, No Fascism, USA," while a man carried a white sheet with text on it, though it was unclear what the text said.
"I just wanted to see if they were still listening," Graham said. "I think they're on the fence about Gitmo, but I'm not sure."
Sessions' comments were also interrupted two other times, as one man called him racist and another woman called him a "pig."
