    Schumer, Warren Among Democrats Who Refuse to Meet With Amy Coney Barrett

    Schumer, Warren Among Democrats Who Refuse to Meet With Amy Coney Barrett

    Democrats: This is all illegitimate!! Me: How do I Constitution?!

    Listen to this article

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Elizabeth Warren will not meet with SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

    Warren would not even refer to Barrett by name. She refers to Barrett as “Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.”

    Why do you hate women, Sen. Warren?

    This is not an illegitimate power grab. Trump is president until we swear in a new president in January. The Constitution, which you vowed to uphold, is pretty clear on this topic.

    Schumer also used the illegitimate talking point:

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Sunday that he will not meet with Barrett, becoming the most prominent Senate Democrat to spurn a meeting with Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

    At a news conference in New York, Schumer said he doesn’t plan to meet with Barrett “because I believe, first, that the whole process has been illegitimate, and, second, because she has already stated that she is for overturning the ACA.”

    Schumer told the ladies on The View that Barrett’s “views are so pronounced that I don’t think meeting with her would change anything.”

    Then can we skip the hearings and just go straight to the vote?

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal won’t meet with Barrett because she apparently wants to deny people healthcare. Oh, it’s also illegitimate.

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand decided not to meet with Barrett because…can you guess? ILLEGITIMATE! Shocker, right?

    Illegitimate? Article II, section ii (emphasis mine):

    He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.

    Sen. Dick Durbin has a spine and decency because he said he would meet Barrett via a phone call to keep with social distancing protocols:

    “I’ve met with every Supreme Court nominee since I’ve been in the Senate. I will extend that courtesy, if she requests it, for at least a socially distanced, safe meeting, perhaps over the phone,” Durbin said during an interview with ABC News’s “This Week.”

    Barrett met with some Republican senators on Tuesday:

    Barrett will also be visited by Senators Mike Crapo, Chuck Grassley and Mike Lee. And she’ll meet with Senator Rick Scott, Senate Majority Whip John Thune and Senator Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

    “We believe the Senate has an opportunity here for a fair and respectful consideration,” Pence told reporters ahead of his meeting with Barrett and McConnell. “We urge our Democratic colleagues in the Senate to take the opportunity to meet with Judge Barrett, and as the hearing goes forward to provide the kind of respectful hearing the American people expect.”

    Karl Rove made a great point yesterday, Jimmy Carter, after he lost the election, nominated on November 13, 1980 Steven Breyer for a position on the US Appeals Court 1st Circuit. He was confirmed 80-10 in just about 4 weeks. So yes, a President can nominate a person at any point in their term even if they are vacating the office.

    Observe the blessings she already has bestowed by total strangers. Not having to withstand the radiant hatred from Shroomer or Warren is affirmation of her essential goodness.

    May the blood of Christ heal the wicked souls of the socialist democratic party.

    Call off the parade, no questions in Committee, it will arrive 2 days early and floor debate/vote can begin immediately.

    Nobody cares if Democrats boycott the proceedings. That would actually be preferable.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Elizabeth Warren will not meet with SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

    Put a TV camera in the room and not even the Marines would be able to keep them out. Schumer particularly never passes up an opportunity to go through his pitiful America’s Got Talent routine whenever there’s a camera in sight.
