Schumer says Democrats won’t give GOP quorum to advance Barrett nomination | Fox News

In what way is this illegitimate? What would be illegitimate would be the President not fulfilling his Constitutional duty just because it is an election year. Despite your party’s repeated borderline treasonous attempts to overthrow his duly elected Presidency and your refusal to accept the results of the 2016 election, Donald J. Trump is still the President. What is dangerous is the precedent you are setting by abandoning your role of Advice and Consent and corrupting it into the role of Obstruct and Vilify. I don’t know where you get unpopular from but even it that is true the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice is not and should never be subject to a test of popularity. That would reduce the highest court in the land to the level of sleazebag politicians like yourself.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday night promised that Democrats will not “supply quorum” for votes to advance Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation effort, essentially meaning that Democrats will boycott the votes in an attempt to stall the confirmation ahead of the election.  Schumer made the comments during a Sunday night press conference in which he also demanded Barrett recuse herself from any cases involving the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the presidential election. Schumer called the Barrett confirmation process “illegitimate, dangerous and unpopular,” Sunday as Democrats ramp up their rhetoric ahead of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Barrett that start Monday.
