Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “LIVE: Protesters Rally Against Amy Coney Barrett Supreme Court Nomination at U.S. Capitol” – below is their description.
(Oct. 22) Watch live as Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and other Senate Democrats march from the U.S. Capitol building the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., to protest the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Democratic senators refused to show up in protest of the Republicans’ rush to install President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Never has the Senate confirmed a Supreme Court nominee so close to a presidential election. “We are voting with our feet” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. “We are standing together and we are standing against this unprecedented mad rush to jam through a Supreme Court nomination just days, days before an election.” The Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans powered past a Democratic boycott to advance Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate, keeping Trump’s pick on track for confirmation before Election Day. “it was in violation of fair play. We believe the American people should have the last word in filling this Supreme Court vacancy, and they will have the last word on November 3rd,” said Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin. “The efforts by Senator McConnell to ignore this pandemic and to move forward with this nomination are inconsistent with the basic principles of this country.” Boycotting Thursday’s Judiciary panel session forced Republicans on the panel to adjust its rules to keep the confirmation on track. Those rules say at least two members of the minority party, Democrats, would need to be present to constitute a quorum for doing business.Bloomberg QuickTake: Now YouTube Channel
