Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is leading the group of Republicans who will NOT go along with Senator Chuck Schumer's plan to temporarily replace Senator Dianne Feinstein on the Judiciary Committee.
Her reasoning is that the leftists are simply trying to "pack the court with activist judges."
Without Feinstein -- or another liberal replacement -- on the panel, liberals are unable to get their judicial nominations out of the committee.
"I will not go along with Chuck Schumer’s plan to replace Senator Feinstein on the Judiciary Committee and pack the court with activist judges. Joe Biden wants the Senate to rubber stamp his unqualified and controversial judges to radically transform America," Blackburn said.
Marsha is herself a member of that committee as well. She said:
Senate Democrats are also attempting to upend precedent and Senate custom by abolishing home-state Senators’ right to object to Biden’s activist liberal judges. We must stand up and protect the Senate’s constitutional role to provide advice and consent on judicial nominees.
