Elizabeth Warren: Democrats Are ‘the Party of Opposition’

JD Thu, 02/09/2017 - 10:32

“Democrats have the minority in the House, the minority in the Senate. But that does not make us the minority party,” Warren said in an interview with MSNBC. She added, “We are the party of opposition, and that is our job. But our tools are very limited. We don’t have the capacity to stop Jeff Sessions if all the Republicans lock arms.”

Warren’s statement arrived hours after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) voted to stop her from reading remarks from 1986 that were critical of Attorney General Jeff Sessions (R-AL) on the Senate floor that stood in violation of Senate Rule XIX, with her characterization of Sessions as a disgrace to the Justice Department.
