Here is video of Sen. Jeff Sessions this morning at the end of his questioning of Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan, saying to her that he was “taken aback” by her attempts to dodge the truth about how she prevented military recruiters from conducting their work at the Harvard Law School when she was Dean there, because she was trying to make a political statement against the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
“I’m just a little taken aback by the tone of your remarks, because it’s unconnected to reality. I know what happened at Harvard. I know you were an outspoken leader against the military policy. I know you acted without legal authority to reverse Harvard’s policy and deny those – the military equal access to campus until you were threatened by the United States Government of loss of Federal Funds. This is what happened!”
It is what happened. And President Obama should never have nominated someone to sit on the Supreme Court who treated our military in this way. If she would act against the military to advance her political and social views, don’t you think she will use her position on the Supreme Court to do the same?
