Skip to comments.Chuck Schumer’s Last Stand: Forces Rare Closed-Door Session to Protest Barrett Nomination
Posted on 10/23/2020 12:22:14 PM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) forced a brief but rare closed-door session in the Senate on Friday as part of the Democrats last-ditch effort to protest Judge Amy Coney Barretts forthcoming confirmation, just one day after Senate Judiciary Republicans voted her out of committee.
Schumer just forced the Senate into a rare closed door session. No cameras. No press. Doors being locked as I type, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) announced Friday morning, describing it as a last ditch effort to convince Republicans to not send the Senate into this death spiral of power politics.

Maybe the GOP Sens will boycott...
The Russians told Murphy to say that.
WAHHHHH!!! I DON'T WANT TO FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION!!!!
You know the Dems would be doing the exact same thing as regards this Supreme Court nomination.
They think we were born at night...LAST NIGHT!
If the roles were reversed, he’d do the same thing Mitch is doing...............
That ship has sailed. Republicans tried to convince Harry Reid not to, but he did it anyway.
It’s gonna be great when AOC takes him out in his next primary 2022
It’s just a delaying tactic, red meat, er, I mean hydrolyzed soy protein, for their base, nothing more...............
Voting by party line to impeach Trump...that was entering a death spiral
Suck it Chuck
They should have thought of that before they borked Bork...
Schumer has lost this battle ... he knows he has lost this battle ... but symbolism over substance is one of the basic tenets of his Democrat/Left/Communist Party so he is compelled to behave this way.
PDJT wipes the floor with Joe at the debate.
GOP has truckloads of material for the final 11 days ads.
Chuckie knows what’s coming for the prog.
Schumer just forced the Senate into a rare closed door session. No cameras. No press. Doors being locked as I type,
= = =
So what did he do?
Pull a Toobin?
communsits begging others to stop lawfully filling a scotus vacancy
i hope they rot in hell for what they’ve done to hundreds of millions of people that have suffered due to them and their actions
And remember that when Harry Reid and Democrats got rid of the filibuster for other presidential nominees in 2013, the filibuster rule still remained for Supreme Court nominees.
At the time of the Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court in 2017, Schumer tried to set up the filibuster of that nomination. It was at that point, that the Mc Connell and the GOP did the “nuclear option” and got rid of the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees.
Imagine if the filibuster rule were still there. This nomination would certainly have been filibustered, based on Democrats saying it’s too close to the election to vote on it. And the vote for Amy Coney Barrett would not be happening now.
The point is, Chuck Schumer has only himself to blame, for the chain of events which brought us to this point. He and Harry Reid have only themselves to blame, for deciding to tamper with long standing Senate rules of procedure. It’s the Democrats fault that the filibuster is gone and they can’t stop this nominee.
The entire world has suffered due to the democrats actions and I'm not exaggerating.
