Another accusation that came up was that Sessions had once allegedly approached an opponent at the conclusion of a court hearing and angrily used a racial slur.

“It is suggested that you stated to Mr. Wiley at the conclusion of a particularly contentious hearing back in 1981, ‘Do not worry,’ or ‘do not be too happy’…’John,’ meaning Archer, ‘will be watching you and the n—er,’ referring to the only black commissioner in Mobile,” Senator Joe Biden said in the hearing.

Sessions immediately denied that this had happened, saying, “that is an absolutely false statement,” The Huffington Post reports.

At the time, Jeff Sessions denied the accusations against him, dismissing many of the comments as being intended in jest and saying that he is not racist.

“I am not the Jeff Sessions my detractors have tried to create,” he said, according to The Washington Post. “I am not a racist. I am not insensitive to blacks.”

He also said earlier this year that “Racism is totally unacceptable in America. Everybody needs to be treated fairly and objectively.”

Civil rights groups have been extremely critical of Sessions, though, not just because of these accusations but because of his voting history. For example, he has opposed hate-crime laws and supported an effort to end affirmative action programs, according to The New Republic. He was also firmly against the removal of the Confederate flag last year.

“So this is a huge part of who we are and the left is continually seeking in a host of different ways it seems to me – you know, I don’t want to be too paranoid about this, but they seek to delegitimize the fabulous accomplishments of our country by finding all the problems and highlighting them continually and ignore the tremendous achievements we’ve obtained,” Sessions said, according to Breitbart.
