Senator Elizabeth Warren Challenges the Senate’s Gag Order

In a stunning moment on the Senate floor, Sen. Elizabeth Warren clashed with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Tuesday night after McConnell determined the Massachusetts Democrat had violated a Senate rule against impugning another senator and she was ordered not to continue her speech. This despite the fact that she was merely reading from a 1986 letter Coretta Scott King, the widow of Martin Luther King Jr., had written to Sen. Strom Thurmond critical of Sessions who was then a nominee to be a federal judge. But the Iron Lady comes back swinging by ensuring she reads entire letter outside the Senate floor demonstrating incredible determination/leadership-not just as a politician but as a solid Liberal Activist who makes no excuse for defending Liberal values ensuring her voice is heard loud and clear-a leadership trait we need now more than ever.
