One of the outside groups supporting Jeff Sessions nomination as attorney general is running a TV ad in DC titled “Champion” that calls him a “civil rights champion” and associates him in images with Barack Obama, Joe Biden and John Lewis. It’s a remarkable re-write of Sessions’ life and career:

The group running the ad is the 45Committee (Trump is the 45th president), a 501(c)(4) organization and doesn’t have to disclose its donors publicly.
