Washington, May 4 (RHC)-- In the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C., three members of the activist group CodePink were convicted Wednesday over their role in a January 10 protest against a Senate confirmation hearing for Jeff Sessions as attorney general.
One of the three, 61-year-old Desiree Ali-Fairooz, faces up to 12 months in prison on "disruptive conduct" charges, after she let out a burst of laughter when Sessions said he had a record of "treating all Americans equally under the law."
During the protest, the demonstrators wore white hooded robes and chanted "No Trump! No KKK! No fascist U.S.A.!" Sessions has a history of making racist comments, including reportedly saying he thought the Ku Klux Klan was "OK until I found out they smoked pot."
