Kirsters Baish| This week, Senate hearings for President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick Judge Brett Kavanaugh began. The Democrats quickly jumped at the chance to rip him apart.
Democratic Senator Kamala Harris was quick to yell at Chairman Chuck Grassley as he introduced Kavanaugh that they were wanting to “adjourn” the proceedings… before anything even began. Republican Senator Ted Cruz then exposed the Democrats for the petty children they were acting like.
Fox News Insider reports that Senator Ted Cruz of Texas stated that Congressional Democrats were hoping to postpone the confirmation of President Trump’s Supreme Court Justice pick, Brett Kavanaugh, because they were hoping to “re-litigate” the 2016 election. [VIDEO BELOW]
The Dems are really wasting a lot of time and energy to try and receive more documents, Cruz explained, saying that their demands are going to be “impossible to meet.”
Cruz went on to explain that looking for more info on Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee is just a way to “distract and delay” confirming him.
“I believe this fight is nothing more and nothing less than an attempt by our Democratic colleagues to re-litigate the 2016 presidential election,” Cruz continued.
Fox News reported:
When Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley first tried to deliver opening remarks, Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris raised objections to the committee just receiving a batch of 42,000 documents relating to the nominee’s work with past administrations.
“We cannot possibly move forward,” Harris, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential contender, said.
Grassley told her she was “out of order,” but other Democrats chimed in to back up Harris, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who moved to adjourn.
This prompted applause from some in the audience, and touched off protests and shouting. Then, after New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker added his voice complaining of a “rush,” Grassley countered: “I think you are taking advantage of my decency and my integrity.”
