A number of liberal groups are calling for a delay of confirmation hearings for Sen. Jeff Sessions, President-elect Donald Trump’s choice to lead the U.S. Department of Justice. Three groups – the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans, People for the American Way and Alliance for Justice – say the Jan. 10 hearing should be postponed citing gaps in Sessions’ record that were not addressed in the questionnaire he sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee. WCYB has more from CNN. Meanwhile, the NAACP is staging a sit-in at Sessions’ office in Mobile and planning protests at other district offices across the state. Local Memphis and Roll Call report on those developments.
