Tom Tancredo: Booker Vs. Sessions Launches New Era of 'Partisan' Politics on Hill

Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live"

By    |   Tuesday, 10 Jan 2017 03:57 PM

Sen. Corey Booker's historic decision to testify against his fellow Sen. Jeff Sessions at Senate confirmation hearings Wednesday will mark a disturbing new level of partisan politics on Capitol Hill, former Rep. Tom Tancredo told Newsmax TV.

"I believe this is a harbinger of things to come," Tancredo, a Colorado Republican and onetime GOP presidential candidate, told Steve Malzberg on Tuesday's "America Talks Live." "It is breaking 200 years of tradition essentially because the Senate is the most collegial body in the world.

"We're all pals, we're all wonderful to each other. Well, that's over with, isn't it? And that is a brand new day in the Senate. They have elevated into a new level. [This] partisanship . . . is a perfect example of where we are going in the Congress of the United States because of the election of Donald Trump."

"[It's] an election that frankly, I believe, is one of the most important that has happened certainly in my lifetime and the biggest change that ever could occur, and they're going to fight it with every single ounce of energy they have. This is an example of that."

If Booker, a New Jersey Democrat, goes ahead with his testimony against Trump's pick for attorney general, it would be the first time in Senate history a sitting senator testified against another sitting senator during Cabinet hearings.

Tancredo is author of "Hating America: The Left's Long History of Despising (And Slowly Destroying) Our Great Country," written with Phil Ross and published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.
