Schumer: We’ll Use Every Tool to Thwart Ginsburg Replacement

Chuck Schumer threatens to use every tool to block Ginsburg replacement




Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has vowed that Democrats “will use every tool in the toolkit” to delay filling Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Schumer admitted Democrats were hellbent on preventing a new conservative judge from filling the vacated seat.

Schumer said:

“We have tactical options to slow them down. We will use every tool in the toolkit. Now, admittedly, McConnell has changed things, changed the rules, so we have fewer tools and they’re less sharp, but every tool we have we will use. Today, we delayed committees going into effect. We had the right to do that and we did it. Tonight, we’re on the floor taking up all the time on the floor to talk about how bad this potential nominee — and there will be many other things that we can use. You’ll see them in the days ahead.”
