Video: Sessions Won't Rule Out
Filibustering Lew Nomination

The Hill

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) on Thursday floated possibly filibustering Jack Lew's nomination for Treasury secretary.

Sessions's comments came a day after he said that Lew, President Obama's chief of staff, "must never be secretary of Treasury." Obama reportedly wants Lew to succeed Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

Asked on CNBC on if he would filibuster Lew's nomination, Sessions, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, said "we'll just see what happens. I intend to oppose this nomination."

According to an aide, Sessions expects Lew's nomination to fail during the Senate confirmation process.

"I don't think he brings to — certainly doesn't bring the gravitas of former New York Fed chairmen like Secretary Geithner and other very prominent people we've had as secretary of Treasury, the premiere financial position of the United States government," Sessions said.
