QOTD 02.08.2017

“The federal courts hold a unique position in our constitutional system, ensuring that minorities and other citizens without political power have a forum in which to vindicate their rights.” –Coretta Scott King, letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee 13 March 1986

Senator Elizabeth Warren was warned to cease reading this letter on the Senate floor 7 February 2017 in opposition to the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General, “nevertheless, she persisted” and was subsequently silenced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
