Elizabeth Warren Made to Shut Up, Sit Down for Impugning the Character of a Sitting Senator


Senator Elizabeth Warren was reprimanded on the Senate floor tonight for a speech she delivered railing against Senate colleague and AG nominee Jeff Sessions.

The fake Indian read decades-old partisan rants by Ted Kennedy and Coretta Scott King attacking Senator Jeff Sessions. It wasn’t substantiated then and it isn’t now.

The words she quoted were used to oppose Sessions for a judgeship in the 1980s. It was a vicious attack. At the core of the verbal assault in the 1980s was the fact they didn’t agree with his views.

Sen. Sessions is a man who destroyed the Alabama KKK and is no racist.

Warren was first warned by the presiding officer to not impugn another senator’s motives or she would be in violation of Rule 19.

Rule 19: No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.

Warren bickered with the presiding officer that she was only reading the words of Kennedy and King but the officer warned her again that it was a violation.

Warren went on reading until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell intervened and said she has “impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama.”

He invoked Rule 19, and Warren lashed out, “I am surprised that the words of Coretta Scott King are not suitable for debate in the United States Senate. I ask leave of the Senate to continue my remarks.”

McConnell objected and the presiding officer told Warren to take her seat. Warren immediately appealed the ruling.

The Senate eventually took a vote tonight and voted 49-43 along party lines upholding the ruling that she violated Rule 19.

Earlier in the night, Warren took to Twitter to denounce what occurred. These are a few of the tweets. Her senate leftist colleagues are also upset that she wasn’t allowed to continue ripping apart Senator Sessions with attacks from the 1980s which she said she’s gladly put in her own words.

She is not being honest. Her comments were not substantive, just dated personal attacks.

Then she acted unhinged. “Afraid” and “Appalled”?

Michael Moore sees this as a win for 2018 but so many of us see this an “about time” moment.There’s a #LetHerSpeak trending on Twitter as if she were Martin Luther King Jr. and anyone silencing her screechy acrimonious invective is an enemy of the state.
