President Donald Trump did not confer with Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer about Trump’s pick of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
This made Chuck Schumer very sad, prompting the New York Democrat to take to the Senate floor to tell America how upset he is.
“In the old days, the president would consult with Republicans and Democrats in the Senate on a qualified judge and then after careful deliberation, nominate a jurist that could get bipartisan support,” Schumer stated.
“What we have here is the exact opposite. The president has gone to two far out-of-the-mainstream, hard right groups, the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society, and asked them – not the Senate – to advise and consent on a Supreme Court nomination.”
“Whomever the president selects tonight, if that nominee is from the pre-approved list selected by Leo and the Heritage Foundation, everyone ought to understand what it means for the freedom of women to make their own health care decisions and for the protection for Americans with preexisting conditions. Those rights will be gravely threatened,” Schumer stated.
Schumer has vowed to fight against Brett Kavanaugh’s place on the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh is expected to be confirmed, even though Senate Democrats will go to the mattresses to try to block him. Some people in the mainstream media were fruitlessly advocating for Obama-era disaster Merrick Garland to be nominated again.
Here is some of Schumer’s prolonged meltdown:

Prominent GOP Attorney Says Jim Jordan Accuser Admitted He Was ‘Hoping’ to Get Money
A prominent GOP attorney wrote a long defense of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on her personal Facebook page yesterday, in which she claimed that one of Jordan’s accusers has admitted to making his accusations on false pretenses.
Cleta Mitchell wrote the following:
“My friend Rep Jim Jordan is under attack by some very disreputable sources. To suggest that Rep Jordan would turn a blind eye to any injustice, wrongdoing, immoral or illegal act is absolutely laughable. Anyone who has known and worked with Jim Jordan, as I have, for nearly a decade knows that Rep Jordan never shies from a fight and that he leads the charge whenever there is a hint of something wrong – even to his own political detriment where others prefer that he remain silent, as they do. He never does.
The question I ask is why are these spurious allegations from disreputable sources being fomented against him now? Who is really behind this? It appears to me to be a concerted effort to smear one of the most honorable gentlemen ever to have served in the US House of Representatives. That is what NBC and other news outlets should be investigating…who is behind this? Can it be sources close to those in the Mueller investigation and the Department of Justice who are uncomfortable with Rep Jordan’s relentless pursuit of the truth behind what they have been doing for the past two years? That is much more likely than that these bizarre accusations are based in any facts whatsoever. We know Jim Jordan. We are only now learning about his accusers and there is something smelly about this entire episode. And yesterday, one of Jordan’s accusers admitted that they were “hoping” to get money … that’s a federal crime. Will the FBI arrest them?”
Mitchell did not specify which accuser was hoping to use the scandal for financial gain, but she is a GOP legal insider.
She confirmed her statement for Big League Politics but did not provide further details at this time.
