This is just not true; all nine justices signed a separate ethics statement that did not address the hearing. Graham even questioned the witnesses based on his false premise.
Thanks for taking the time to shed light on this distinction. I suspect I won’t hear about it very many other places, if any.
Durbin continues the 7-year pretense that all is well, with a few disturbances that are quickly swept under the carpet.
Continuing to pretend that the GOP is not a hardened extremist cult that must be defeated to save our country is both foolish and shortsighted.
We are not a polarized country. We are a faltering democracy with an ascendant autocracy, fueled by right-wing donors, who have fully captured the Court.
Denial and gaslighting won't save our future.
Lindsay Graham has become a mini me of Trump with the lying. He makes me sick. John McCain would be seriously disappointed with LG.
What's going on with Durbin? And the other Dems on this committee? Have they all gone to sleep?
So Lindsay Graham either was confused/mistaken or he deliberately lied 🤥, & he was not called out for this error until after he had left the hearing? Senator Dick Durban (Democrat)is the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee & didn’t see fit to correct this immediately, but allowed this hearing to proceed based on this lie? WTF? We need a new Chair who demands that truth prevails.
That's on the Democrats on the committee for not calling out Graham for his misrepresentation.
Dick Durbin has not exactly covered himself in glory, thus far in this session of Congress. Blue slips continue to block judicial appointments for purely partisan reasons; members who espouse falsehoods are not challenged. Durbin is evidence that being a Democrat doesn’t necessarily imply having a spine.
Why am I unsurprised that Senator Graham would lie?
Senate Democrats demonstrate on a daily basis that they are not up to doing battle on behalf of the American with the far right on politicization of the judiciary.
