Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee escalated their all-out war with Chairman Chuck Grassley Wednesday; boycotting the scheduled hearings surrounding six of President Trump’s judicial nominees.
“The committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (CA), and the other Democrats on the committee wrote a letter to Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley Monday demanding that he postpone the hearings until after recess when the Senate returns to Washington on November 13th,” writes Town Hall.
“The Committee has never before held nominations hearings while the Senate is in recess before an election,” Democratic Senators wrote. “The handful of nominations hearings that have been held during a recess have been with the minority’s consent, which is not the case here — in fact, we were not even consulted.”
Grassley slammed Feinstein’s complaints in a scathing letter released to Congressional lawmakers just hours later, saying “You specifically agreed not to object to the timing of hearings scheduled for October 10, 17, and 24.”
