WASHINGTON - The women of the Congressional Black Caucus had Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s back Wednesday night. Before the Senate confirmed Sen. Jeff Sessions as President Donald Trump’s attorney general on a 52-47 vote, 13 black caucus Democrats took to video and read a letter by the late Martin Luther King’s widow critical of the Alabama Republican - the same letter that got Warren, D-Mass., barred from speaking on the Senate floor after she read from it Tuesday night.
