The fourth and final day of Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s hearing began with fights between Democrats and Republicans because Chairman Lindsey Graham scheduled the committee vote for October 22.

I just heard Sen. Amy Klobuchar yell at the Republicans for “plopping” Barrett’s nomination on them in the middle of an election.

My dear, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away. This is what happens when there is a SCOTUS vacancy. Be mad at RBG.

Graham set the committee vote for October 22

From Roll Call:

Sen. Richard J. Durbin of Illinois was the only Democrat who showed up to a committee business meeting Thursday morning to consider the nomination, which under the letter of committee rules meant there were not two members of the minority party to form a quorum to conduct business.

Chairman Lindsey Graham responded with a motion to hold the vote at 1 p.m. on Oct. 22, which Republicans backed. And the South Carolina Republican suggested Democrats would be able to do the same if Republicans tried to stop committee work.

“We’ve had this problem in the past, we’re dealing with it the way we are today,” Graham said. “If we create this problem for you in the future, you’re going to do what I’m going to do, which is move forward on the business of the committee.”

Democrats proceeded to lose their damn minds
