The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is calling on Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to recuse himself from voting on his own confirmation for attorney general, following a report about information omitted from a questionnaire that he submitted.

"Jeff Sessions has fiercely argued in the past that omitting information isn't just wrong, that it may also be illegal," said DNC spokesman Adam Hodge in a statement. "So what does he do once he's nominated to be the Attorney General? He omits information from his dark past, particularly when he was deemed too racist to be a federal judge."

Jeff Sessions Omits Decades Of Records For His AG Confirmation Hearing

  Jeff Sessions Omits Decades Of Records For His AG Confirmation Hearing WASHINGTON ― President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for attorney general, Jeff Sessions, is withholding decades’ worth of records from his career ahead of his Senate confirmation hearings early next month, according to an exhaustive report issued Fridayby progressive advocacy groups. The groups, which include Alliance for Justice and People for the American Way, reviewed the questionnaire that Sessions filled out for the Senate Judiciary Committee ― it requires complete documentation of employment history, published writings, interviews and speeches, among other things ― and found “astonishingly deficient” responses.

"Based on his own reasoning, and in keeping with Senate tradition, Sessions must recuse himself from voting on his own nomination."

The statement was issued in response to a Huffington Post report about advocacy groups criticizing Sessions for leaving gaps in a questionnaire about his past that he submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee, of which he is a member.

A group of liberal nonprofits, including the Alliance for Justice and People for the American Way, issued a report listing examples of public statements that Sessions did not include in his questionnaire.

Huffington Post noted that that Sessions had been an outspoken critic of some of President Obama's nominees for leaving out details in their own questionnaires.

"I want to share a concern that I do have about Judge Sotomayor's answers to the Senate Judiciary standard questionnaire," he said in June 2009 during a hearing on then-Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.

"It is still incomplete. I know the administration was very proud to dump a lot of records out in what they call 'record time,' but here, two weeks later, we still have some serious gaps in those answers to the committee questions."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a member of the judiciary panel, said earlier this month that Sessions's submission appeared "incomplete," though she called for more time to review his questionnaire.

"I am sure you would agree that staff must have sufficient time to do the due diligence on any nominee for this vital position-and this due diligence will likely take longer than the review for recent, prior nominees who had less materials to analyze," Feinstein wrote in a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).

"Second, despite being voluminous, Senator Sessions' production appears to have been put together in haste and is, on its face, incomplete," she added.
