Sen. Whitehouse Urges Republicans to ‘Stand Up’ to the Supposed ‘Big Donors’ Pushing Barrett’s Confirmation
Listen to this article
Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse managed to insert his war on “dark money” into his statement at Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s hearing.
Whitehouse claimed his constituents view Barrett’s confirmation as a “judicial torpedo.”
Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse: "My constituents want you, my colleagues, members of the Republican Party, to stand up for once to Mitch McConnell and to the big donors who are driving this process, and for the sake of regular people say, 'Stop'" https://t.co/uScvfX9o80 pic.twitter.com/MIBUQcRElD

From NBC News:
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., said in his opening statement that he hopes Republicans consider that health care coverage is at stake in this confirmation process, as millions of people are relying on the Affordable Care Act during the coronavirus pandemic.
Whitehouse said that Rhode Islanders are “calling, writing, emailing, tweeting me by the thousands asking me to say ‘no’ to this nominee mostly because they see as a judicial torpedo aimed at their essential protections.”
“My constituents want you, my colleagues, members of the Republican Party, to stand up for once to Mitch McConnell and to the big donors who are driving this process, and for the sake of regular people, say ‘stop,'” he said.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I can’t wait until Sen. Whitehouse subpoenas Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s personal high school yearbook and investigates it for fart jokes. It seems to be his M.O. when vetting SCOTUS judges nominated by Republican presidents.
A clear example of the Democrat’s complete contempt for the Constitution.
He one creepy-ass cracka.
