Chuck Schumer – February, 2017:
“There is a grand tradition, that I support, that you can’t ask a judge who was nominated or a potential judge who was nominated for a judgeship about a specific case that might come before them”
Chuck Schumer – Yesterday, before knowing who President Trump would select as his Supreme Court nominee:
“Considering the ample evidence that President Trump will only select a nominee who will undermine protection for Americans with preexisting conditions, give greater weight to corporate interests than the interests of our citizens, no what matter what president says, and vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the next nominee has an obligation, a serious and solemn obligation, to share their personal views on these legal issues, no matter whom President Trump selects tonight.”
Chuck Schumer – every day: A phony, two-faced hack politician…and, I strongly suspect, one of the reasons so many usually-Democrat voters decided that, with all his warts, Donald Trump should be their choice for President.
Oh, one other thing: As pointed out by Conor Beck, in his article for freebeacon.com, which is where I pulled the above quotes:
The tradition that Schumer had previously expressed support for is known as the Ginsburg Rule, named for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s refusal to answer questions about personal views on issues that might come before the Supreme Court.
Let me know when you find Schumer’s quote condemning that “rule” when it was applied to Ms. Ginsburg.
