Muzzling Warren Backfires on McConnel

As per Newsday:!/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/display_600/image.jpg


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) reacts to being rebuked by the Senate leadership and accused of impugning a fellow senator, Attorney General-designate, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2017, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Warren was barred from saying anything more on the Senate floor about Sessions after she quoted from an old letter written by Coretta Scott King about Sessions.

The editorial “Muzzling Warren rightly backfires on McConnell” [Feb. 9] reminded all of us that we should not sit down and be silenced.

I understand the need for decorum and rules in the U.S. Senate, but prohibiting a respected senator from reading a letter from the wife of one of the most prominent civil rights leaders in America is unacceptable.
