Sen. Tim Scott, the only black Republican in Congress, said he has done the research on the allegations of racism against Sen. Jeff Sessions' nomination to be attorney general and has not found "any indication that he is a racist at all."
In the weeks since President-elect Trump nominated Sessions to become the chief law enforcement officer of the land, Democrats and many liberal civil rights organizations have renewed allegations of racism that sunk Sessions' nomination to a federal judgeship 30 years ago
Scott hasn't shied away from speaking out against racism, talking publicly last year in very personal terms about several instances in which he believes police have treated him unfairly because of the color of his skin. He relayed one instance in which a Capitol Police officer stopped him even though he was wearing a member's pin and said police have pulled him over seven times in one year.
When it comes to the allegations against Sessions, Scott said he has done his homework..
