The funny part is, just imagine if they grilled Clinton during the Benghazi hearings half as hard as they are trying to do to Sessions right now.

I still feel cheated by the thread title. I originally came in expecting to see Feinstein "school" Sessions. Instead, I just saw Feinstein make a completely sleazy decrepit idiot out herself every time she started flapping her gums. Darn it, OP, if I wanted to see that, I could just watch... well, every other time she has ever flapped her gums in public.

HE JUST SAID HE WOULD NOT LOOK THE OTHER WAY ON WEED!

The state level legalization only exists by the grace of the Obama Administration not enforcing Federal Law...

Asked if he would prosecute people using marijuana as their state law allows, he said he "would not commit to not enforcing federal law"

An entire industry is going berserk right now.

Anytime you see the name DIANE FEINSTEIN, don't expect much of substance to follow. Nancy Pelosi and Elijah Cummings are low-browed agitators as well.

This hearing is exposing democrat smearing... all the good work Sessions has done, including going after the KKK is coming out, not just the cherry picked propaganda stories filled with half truths and lies.

Good, federal law trumps state law.

How long after the Senator Sessions hearing has ended is the vote?

Which is a really terrible state of affairs.

Sessions has already indicated support for state-level decision making (as opposed to the Obama admin's top-heavy micromanagement via EO and selective enforcement) which suggests he might be more supportive of attempts by Congress to decriminalise at the Federal level and leave the matter in the hands of the states to decide for themselves.

This would actually be the best outcome for all involved, in my opinion, including for those growing industries you mention. Whether Congress would go for it is a matter for an entirely different thread.

Oh yeah. Now you're all in favor of the Federal Government huh???

You're just here to antagonize people.

Any other time you'd be yelling about the Federal Government overreaching until now when you can praise it for stomping on what people have voted for in their own states.

Absolutely no principles, honestly or integrity left is there......

Didn't Senator Al Franken use to be a comedian? Looks familiar. He just asked a really stupid question.

Nobody is waiting for narratives....

Yes he was a comedian. Did mostly writing and behind the scenes stuff but was on camera as well too. He's been a senator for a while now though. Not sure how long.

FWIW I read the opposite.... as pro-state law, I could be wrong.

He said he wont use(persue) federal law to persecute who are in legal states. Good, because federal law is the only thing stopping it in those cases, and its not going to go out of its way to enforce it.

Obama had 8 years to legalize it!!!! Why all of a sudden is it the Republicans fault?

Don't forget, the Democrats had full control for 2 years and did NOTHING! roflmao

Here's what was said in text so we can actually take it apart and figure out what was said.




Senator Leahy: “Would you use our federal resources to investigate and prosecute sick people using marijuana in accordance with state law even though it might violate federal law?”

Senator Sessions: “I won’t commit to never enforcing federal law, Senator Leahy, but absolutely it is a problem of resources for the federal government. The Department of Justice under Lynch and Holder set forth some policies that they thought were appropriate to define what cases should be prosecuted in states that have legalized, at least in some fashion marijuana, some parts of marijuana.”

Senator Leahy: “Do you agree with those guidelines?”

Senator Sessions: “I think some of them are truly valuable in evaluating cases, but fundamentally the criticism I think that is legitimate is that they may not have been followed. Using good judgment on how to handle these cases will be a responsibility of mine I know it wont be an easy decision but i will try to do my duty in a fair and just way.”

Senator Leahy: “The reason I mention this, is because you have some very strong views, you even mandated the death penalty for second offense on drug trafficking, including marijuana, even though mandatory death penalties are of course unconstitutional.”

Senator Sessions: “Well I’m not sure under what circumstances i said that, but I don’t think…”

Senator Leahy: “Would you say it‘s not your view today?”

Senator Sessions: “(laughs) It is not my view today.”

Thanks! I guess Arnold and Donald are the only celebrities who have been elected to higher offices.

This is what he said to Senator Lee which I agree with him in that he's not there to say what the law is, just enforce it as it is.



“One obvious concern is the United States Congress has made the possession in every state and distribution an illegal act. If that’s something that’s not desired any longer Congress should pass a law to change the rule, it is not the Attorney General’s job to decide what laws to enforce.”


That doesn't help in knowing what his position is however.
