A group of 13 liberal organizations fired-off a scathing letter to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Wednesday; saying the left-wing legislator was “failing” in his attempts to block Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court.
The letter -written by prominent left-wing groups such as Women’s March and Democracy for America- slammed Schumer’s seeming inability to stop President Trump’s pick from being confirmed to the bench.
“The Supreme Court is on the line, and you are failing us,” says the statement. “No senator who cares about our democracy should let a criminal co-conspirator like Donald Trump put anyone on the Supreme Court, and certainly not a nominee like Brett Kavanaugh.”
“Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead your caucus in complete opposition to Trump’s attempted Supreme Court takeover and to defend everyone threatened by a Trump Supreme Court. But unbelievably, nearly two dozen Democrats have still not come out against Kavanaugh, and just last week, you helped Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fast track 15 Trump judicial nominees. That is not the leadership we need,” adds the letter.

COURT CHAOS: Kavanaugh Hearing Interrupted by Protesters, Dems Call for DELAY
The hearings surrounding President Trump’s nominee to join the Supreme Court descended into chaos Tuesday morning, with liberal protesters chanting “vote no” as Congressional Democrats called for an indefinite postponement.
“Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley was able to deliver his opening statement for just a few seconds before Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris raised objections to the committee just receiving a batch of 42,000 documents relating to the nominee’s work with past administrations,” writes Fox News.
“We cannot possibly move forward,” said Sen. Harris.
Sen. Cory Booker slammed Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley moments later, saying the proceedings violated his “sense of decency.”
“I think you are taking advantage of my decency and my integrity,” Grassley fired-back.
