The Senate judiciary seemed unaffected by Republican reports that his colleagues for the entire aisot may waive Thursday’s vote to pursue Judge Amy Connie Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination.
“We will vote for the candidate,” South Carolina Republican and Judiciary President Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters when asked about the Democratic boycott.
Sen.-Major Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Q. Said a full Senate vote on Barrett’s confirmation on Tuesday is expected on Monday.
According to the New York Times, Democrats are “strongly considering” the Judiciary Committee in opposition to Republicans moving forward with Barrett’s confirmation just before the November election.
The report has been rejected informing the ACB meeting in this regard
A boycott would be mostly symbolic, designed to drive voters home to the point that Republicans are setting the precedent for working with a 6-3 conservative majority on the court less than two weeks before the election. Members of the judiciary committee who show up will be forced to delay voting or break the rules of the panel, allowing members of the opposite party to appear to do business.
“The idea is that those who follow the criteria here will be someone other than Senate Democrats who deserve laughter. See, they have made fun of this process. Remember what he did to Brett Kavanught a few years ago? “Sen. Mike-R-Utah asked Shannon Bream of Fox News.
“So for them to talk about being out of the Senate norm, it’s really hypocritical to put it mildly. As far as their failure to show up this Thursday, if they do , Then they will do so at their own risk, ”Lee said.
Democrats have worked all week to confirm Barrett to make the bench as politically possible. Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, DN.Y., moved to adjourn the Senate on both Monday and Tuesday and was ruled by Republicans on both days.
On Wednesday, Schumer placed a point of order, or a complaint that Republicans were breaking precedents, noting that a Scotch candidate was not confirmed after July in an election year. The order forced Republicans to go on record for confirmation.

Schumer wrote on Twitter ahead of the vote, “I am compelled for a vote, which the Senate has not confirmed a Supreme Court nominee for President Election Day.” “We’re not going to do business as usual, while the GOP tries to use an illegitimate process to jam health care away from millions of people through a nominee.”
