Donald Trump Attorney general nominee Senator Jeff Sessions will face the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday morning for his confirmation hearing.
Senator Corey Booker will testify against his colleague in an unprecedented move by Democrats. This is the first time in history that a sitting senator will testify against another sitting senator for a Cabinet post during a confirmation.
Senator Jeff Sessions desegregated schools in Alabama and took on the KKK in the state.
