Grassley Slams Harry Reid's Tantrums over SCOTUS Nominee on Senate Floor
The Democrats have pulled out all the stops to pressure Senate Republicans to hold a vote on President Obama's eventual replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. In particular, they are targeting Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) with vile op-eds in partisan Iowa newspapers and threatening him with a challenge in his re-election bid.
Grassley's challenger, former Lt. Governor Patty Judge, said she will focus on Grassley's refusal to
cave into the Democrats' wishes hold hearings on Obama's nominee as part of her campaign.
Like I said: ALL THE STOPS.
Soon-to-be-retired Minority Leader and Chief Obstructor Harry Reid (D-NV) has taken the Democrats' righteous indignation/dog and pony show theatrics to the Senate floor.
The Hill reports, "Reid has spent the last week delivering daily speeches against Grassley, accusing him of abandoning the Constitution and blindly adhering to McConnell's wishes."
Oh, the humanity!
"Now as each day passes, the senior senator from Iowa is trying desperately to justify his blind loyalty to the Republican leader and to Donald Trump," Reid said. "Senator Grassley is grasping for any rationale — anything that will excuse him for not doing his job."
