Senator Dick Durbin was among Democrats voting against the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions to become the next Attorney General in the Judiciary Committee this morning. Sessions' nomination was approved in an 11-9 partisan vote. While Sessions is not a part of the Trump Administration yet, Durbin believes he's already acting in an unofficial capacity as a loyal advisor on immigration. Durbin believes Washington Post reports that Session is tied to executive orders on immigration that limited travel from certain nations with a mostly Muslim population.
Durbin also says he doesn't believe Sessions will pursue the investigation into reports of Russian interference in the November election.
