Sessions’ confirmation process

The Donald nominated Senator Jeff Sessions to be his Attorney General.

NRA is pleased with the pick:

“… This nomination sends a strong message to Second Amendment supporters that he is serious about protecting our constitutional freedoms …”

Democrats will try to derail the nomination:

“Democratic senators plan to aggressively target eight of Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees in the coming weeks and are pushing to stretch their confirmation votes into March … Incoming Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) has told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that Democrats will home in especially on … Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), his pick for attorney general …”

Trump thinks Schumer is his BFF:

“Donald Trump told Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer in a phone call he likes him more than his GOP brethren House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a source close to the transition team said. During a recent phone call, the president-elect “said to Schumer he likes Schumer more than Ryan and McConnell because they both wanted him to lose,” the source said … Trump has described his relationship with the incoming Senate minority leader as “very good” and “close” in interviews …”

Hold that thought.
