Schumer Notes 'Troubling Things' in Record of Jeff Sessions, Trump's Attorney General Pick

"Like any nominee, he has to be questioned very carefully," Schumer said.

ABC's Martha Raddatz also noted to Schumer in an interview that will air Sunday on "This Week" that Sessions "was one of only four senators to vote against a Senate Judiciary Committee amendment that banned a religious test for immigrants.”

"These are troubling things, and the only fair thing to do is ask a lot of questions, very thorough questions and then make an opinion," Schumer said.

"Like any nominee he has to questioned very carefully, not only about his past but about his future," the New York senator said.
