NEW YORK – Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling on majority leader Mitch McConnell to delay judiciary committee hearings on Supreme Court Nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
That’s after three senators tested positive for Coronavirus, leading McConnell to say it’s not safe for the senate to meet.
“Even though he has said it’s not safe for the Senate to meet in session, but it’s okay to have the hearings,” said Schumer. “And the idea of having virtual hearings, where no one is with the witness for the highest court in the land for a life appointment that would have such effect on people’s lives, makes no sense.”
Schumer also said he asked McConnell for every senator and staffer to get tested for the virus, but that his request has gone unanswered.
