After attempting to read a 1986 letter from Coretta Scott King imploring a judiciary committee not to make Jeff Sessions a federal judge, Elizabeth Warren was forbidden from further participating in the floor debate of Sessions' Attorney General Senate confirmation hearings. The Massachusetts senator refused to be silenced, taking to Facebook Live outside of the Senate floor to read King's letter in its entirety.

That Facebook Live video has now gone viral, being viewed over six million times in less than a day. It's safe to say the Senate GOP's attempt to shut the senator up has backfired in a major way. Thanks to what is commonly known as the "Streisand Effect," more people are hearing King's letter than may ever have had the Republicans just let Warren speak. And as Warren mentions at the end of her video, King's letter is just as relevant today as it was 30 years ago.

In the letter, the civil rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King, Jr. clearly and eloquently lays out just how critical it is that Sessions not be given the power to disenfranchise black voters (again). Votes on Sessions' Attorney General confirmation are set to be cast soon, but until then, below is a transcript of Warren's Facebook Live video in which she reads King's letter in full.

Votes for and against Sessions' Attorney General confirmation are expected to be cast on Feb. 8.
