    Democratic lawmakers oppose Jeff Sessions in blistering Senate testimony

    ... Rep. John Lewis, a Democrat from Georgia and a leader in the civil rights movement, said Sessions’ call for “law and order” sounded similar to what he heard growing up in Alabama from pro-segregation officials who wanted to prevent black people from voting.

    ... Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, who became the first sitting senator to testify against a colleague’s nomination Wednesday, also said he was bothered by Sessions’ emphasis on law and order; “America was founded heralding not law and order, but justice for all,” Booker said ...

    Trump says won't divest from his business while president

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would maintain ownership of his global business empire but hand off control to his two oldest sons while president, an arrangement that watchdogs said would not prevent conflicts of interest in the White House.

    Trump told a news conference he would resign from all positions overseeing his hotels, golf courses and hundreds of other businesses and move his assets into a trust to help ensure that he will not consciously take actions as president that would benefit him personally ...
