Last night, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke out against the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) for attorney general, reading a letter from Coretta Scott King. In a highly unusual move, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) led a vote to silence Warren — a rebuke not extended to several of her male colleagues. It follows an old and very sexist playbook

Water protectors fought hard against the Dakota Access pipeline. Yesterday, the president made good on his threat to approve it.

A terrible new GOP bill would limit legal immigration, and hurt Africans, Asians, and Latinos.


Soundbite

"Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of this office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters."

 — Coretta Scott King
