Elizabeth Warren Cut-Off Mid Sentence – Silenced On Senate Floor By Mitch McConnell (VIDEO)
D.C.-Senator Elizabeth Warren AKA Pocahontas was cut off from speaking on the Senate floor by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. She was reading a letter written by Coretta Scott King.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shut down Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren during a Senate floor speech on Tuesday, accusing the Democrat of violating Senate rules by criticizing their colleague and attorney general nominee, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions.
Warren was warned early on in her remarks by Montana Sen. Steve Daines, the Republican overseeing the floor speeches, after she quoted Coretta Scott King, the late widow of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Warren quoted King asserting that Sessions had “exhibited so much hostility to the enforcement” of voting rights laws for blacks.
Daines struck his gavel and reprimanded Warren, who is one of a handful of Democrats who plan an all-night Senate floor session to oppose the Trump nominee.
“The senator is reminded that it is a violation of Rule 19 of the standing rules of the Senate to ‘impute to another senator or senators any conduct or motive unworthy or becoming a senator,” Daines said.
It is so satisfying watching the look on Elizabeth Warren’s face as she’s begging to speak on the Senate floor! The Democrats have been in power for so long that they really don’t know what to do now that there is a new sheriff in town! I am not tired of winning!
