Blumenthal in Senate floor speech warns of ‘consequences’ if Barrett confirmed | Fox News

Don’t you just love these clowns when they threaten “consequences” when they can’t get their way? Like they’ve been so statesmanlike in their behavior for te past three and a half years. What a bunch of whiny crybabies.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal issued a nonspecific warning of “consequences” if Republicans move ahead with the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett on Monday amid Democrats’ talk of packing the Supreme Court or eliminating the Senate filibuster if President Trump’s nominee is seated. Blumenthal, D-Conn., was one of a parade of senators to hit the floor on Sunday night and Monday morning ahead of a likely confirmation vote on Barrett Monday evening. In remarks that ran over 40 minutes, Blumenthal touched on issues ranging from health care to abortion to a request he made for Barrett to recuse herself from any election-related cases, which Barrett declined. But twice Blumenthal alluded to potential retaliation from Senate Democrats if Republicans succeed in seating the circuit court judge and Notre Dame law professor on the highest court in the land.
