Statement from JCN Chief Counsel and Policy Director Carrie Severino ahead of the 2pm ET press conference held by Sens. Schumer, Whitehouse and Blumenthal today:

by JCN | March 29th, 2017

“Senator Schumer and his Democratic colleagues have decided to engage in an unprecedented level of gridlock and obstruction, and now they are behaving like third-world strongmen whose approach to public policy is to bully and intimidate people with whom they disagree. We are proud to count on supporters who value privacy and freedom of expression more than these Senators, who are glorified thugs. We will continue to support the confirmation of exceptionally qualified nominees like Neil Gorsuch, who enjoy a broad base of bipartisan support because of their commitment to putting the law ahead of any political agenda.”
