Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley told committee Democrats Monday that he would move forward with two hearings for judicial nominees during the congressional recess despite their objections.
"It's unfair to the nominees, who have already flown to Washington D.C. and made travel arrangements for their families to further delay this hearing," Grassley said in his letter to the committee's top Democrat, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, pointing to previous postponements for hearings. "And it's unfair to the American people."
"As a result of Democratic delay tactics, there are now 154 current and future judicial vacancies, 63 of which are classified as judicial emergencies," he added. "The judiciary simply cannot afford further obstruction from your side."

Winning....and the demonrats can’t stand it
They have nothing to lose and everythign to gain. We HAVE TO impress into them that vote fraud will be investigated and there will be mandatory jail time (even if there's not- we just need to scare them off as much as possible)
There will be no investigation of vote fraud if they manage to pull it off- they will be back in charge!
Why is no one talking about this???
Trump has inspired even old RINOcrats to act like they got a pair
This is what it’s like to have an adult in the room when a bunch of babies get carried away with their shenanigans. Enough is enough; we’ve got work to do.
You need to admit Grassley has done a good job of pushing Trump’s nominees through to confirmation.
This is downright weird.
The ‘Rats want to delay judicial confirmations till a new congress where they’ll have about 6 less votes in the Sinate?
The Kavanaugh hearing laid to rest any idea the Democrats would someday come around and accept reality. The GOPe seems to now realize this ...
I wouldn’t give the democrats steam off a San Francisco sidewalk loaf.
“Perhaps they should be furious with the ranking member, whose staff agreed to the hearing dates. (We have the emails)”
“Senate Democrats have sent a letter complaining that they were ‘not consulted’ about a hearing that not only had the ranking member agreed to.. but they had specifically agreed to ‘not to object to the timing of hearings scheduled.’”

“You need to admit Grassley has done a good job of pushing Trumps nominees through to confirmation.”
Old school midwest common sense. Iowa farmers know the smell of bull shit very well.
“It’s unfair to the nominees, who have already flown to Washington D.C. and made travel arrangements for their families to further delay this hearing,” Grassley said
Should have said....
Are you kidding me? You’re joking, right? After all your recent delaying tactics, including destroying a fine man’s character, you have the nerve to try MORE delays? Go call a yourselves a wambulance.
After Kavanagh I don’t think Grassley is in the mood to cooperate.
No more stalling. All the previous Democrat stalling has consequences. No breaks now. Plow ahead.
Yinz guys shouldn’t have p*ssed him off with the Ford thing.
Grassley got rolled on the Kavanaugh confirmation by RATs.
Good to see he won’t allow it to happen again.
So called (pretend) Senate comity makes me want to hurl.
They HATE each other, why pretend?
Hahahaha....I like that! And so appropriate for this mob of anti-American fascists.
