Jeff Sessions on Kagan: “Filibuster Is Not Off The Tableâ?ť

Republicans threatening to use the "F" bomb? Hopefully.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) told HUMAN EVENTS that he would not rule out filibustering Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court. In an exclusive interview, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee said that a "filibuster is not off the table," but cautioned that such a procedural tactic would only be employed under "extraordinary circumstances." Asked if Kagan’s penchant for judicial and political activism hit the benchmark of "extraordinary circumstances," Sessions wouldn’t commit, but noted how Kagan did not "help herself in her testimony."

If confirmed, Sessions said that Kagan could very well be one of five judges "who can actually redefine the meaning of those words [the Constitution] that protect our liberties."

"Frankly, I don’t think she assuaged our concerns at the [confirmation] hearing."
