Statement from Judicial Crisis Network’s Chief Counsel and Policy Director Carrie Severino

by JCN | September 5th, 2017

“By choosing to obstruct Justice David Stras’s nomination, Senator Franken is proving that he cares less about the rule of law and competent judges than he cares about scoring political points.  Justice Stras follows the law, he has broad support from across the political spectrum in Minnesota, he was reelected by wide margins (wider margins than Senator Franken), and he even earned the highest rating from the liberal American Bar Association.  Senator Grassley has all the evidence he needs that Democrats have abused the blue slip process, and that it is time to move forward despite the obstruction.”
