Senate Judiciary Committee sends Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination to full Senate as Democrats boycott vote
"And I'm Noelle King. Good morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. Mr Chairman, the votes for 12 years and 10 not present motion is passed. Thank you. All 12 Republican senators voted for her nomination. The committee's 10 Democrats did not show up. They were boycotting the proceedings. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzales has been following this story and the proceedings. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning. No. Well so fairly short today. This morning. What happened? Yes, it all went by very quickly, all said, and done and under 12 minutes. This is a very traumatic Shift from what we saw last week with hours and hours of testimony at least 20 hours of questioning Barrett by the members on the panel, both Republicans and Democrats, But today Democrats boycotted they did not show up. Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee sidestepped that no show to move barrettes nomination forward to the full Senate. Democrats said they were boycotting because they wanted to highlight the damage that bear it would do to healthcare, reproductive and voting rights and the fact that the vote took place amid a presidential election. And this is one battle. Democrats say perhaps the lose, but they're looking to win a bigger war. Graham alluded to that when he talked about the next vote on the Senate floor. Let's take a listen They started this On May For up to May that be a 60 vote requirement in the Senate today, and he's referring to the Senate filibuster there. This is a requirement of 60 votes that was once needed to approve a nomination like barrettes. But the filibuster was eliminated in 2013 as Democrats struggled to move their judges forward when they control the chamber with the tight margin, So that's what Graham is referencing, and he added later that perhaps this will be addressed again in the future. However, now that the Senate is controlled by Republicans with tight margins, they're able to push through barrettes nomination with just 51 votes. It's a preview of the battles to calm that this will go on after barrettes nomination this conversation even as far as she goes to the floor to be considered by the full Senate, and we see if Democrats ultimately changed the dynamics of power in the Senate or the presidency through the upcoming election day. How did Democrat to respond today? They didn't just say nothing right? Yes, there had been rumors for days that Democrats could boycott these hearings. They were facing a lot of pressure from outside groups to even skip out on the hearings last week questioning their it. But they decided not to do that last week. Instead, they did it to Dae. So later yesterday, they confirmed that they would all not show today they're empty seats were filled instead with images of Americans who have used the affordable care act. This is a case that could become it could be considered before the court next month. And so this is one critical issue They've been highlighting all along. They also held a news conference after the vote. This was led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the steps of the Capitol is take a listen. The nomination of Amy Cockney Barrel. Is the most illegitimate process I have ever witnessed in the Senate, and her potential confirmation will have dire, dire consequences. For the Senate. With his Supreme Court and our entire country for generations to come. So this was the theme they've been driving through this entire process. Barrett will shift the court to a 63 conservative majority, and they say she's a foe to the affordable care act. The landmark abortion rights case, Roe v. Wade, and she could play a role. If there's a dispute in the election. This is activated activated opposition as well. There were protesters outside the capital. Speaking against this nomination, this resulted in about a half a dozen arrests so far today I spoke to Judiciary Committee Democrat Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut yesterday, said the watchword for them is no more business. As usual. He and the other members have been driving home this point that this is a sham process. It's not normal. It's not writing Americans should see it for what it is and probably see more of this in the coming days, because there is so much acrimony over this nomination. Yes, exactly So many reasons. We're in the midst of a pandemic. We're rushing this through in 30 days, one of the fastest, we've seen the fight over health care. And, of course, you know the division between Republicans and Democrats. Really. Exemplified by President Trump pushing this forward and so there's a long history as well of these fights over the Supreme Court in the controversy surrounding these nominations if we go back to 2016, Democrats try to move forward. President Obama's nominee at the time. This is Judge Merrick. Garland and Republicans refused because they said they were so close to an election months away. But here we are now people are early voting and they're pushing this through. So this is set into motion a series of debates to calm and we're even hearing about it from the Democratic nominee Joe Biden this morning. We understand he told 60 minutes that he's going to create A study a commission to bipartisan commission to study whether they should add more seats to the courts a lot more to come here, including next week, right what happens then? So tomorrow, the nomination for Barrett actually will reach the full Senate floor. It's going to be followed by some procedural votes on Friday, as well as on Sunday. In between, we're going to see a lot of debate an argument back and forth. But the rial final moment for this will come Monday when the full Senate will submit their votes for bear to confirm or vote against her nomination to the Supreme Court. NPR congressional reporter Claudio Gonzalez. Thanks, Claudia. Thanks for having me

"Senator Richard Blumenthal, constantly outraged by things that are not anti Trump and Paul manafort's forty months and not forty years in prison seems to have have the Democrats in a tizzy the two year vilification in allegations of collusion. The former Trump campaign manager gets not for years like everybody wanted a just gets four years like meant to surprise many. And it's about past crimes, not Russian collusion is this the first stop on the exoneration train or an aberration. We'll talk about that. I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-semitic attitude. It's up to hurt it to explain. But I do not believe that she understood the full weight of the words wouldn't silting Stephen that is I don't understand what I'm saying is basically what she's saying back down. That's what speaker Pelosi did to the outspoken democratic freshman class of congresswoman Omar's antisemitic offenses, morphed into a generic childish anti-hate measure, it is a true disgrace with that. Let's bring in the host of Shannon bream show. It is Fox News at night. Correct, shannon. You are correct. And Chas got a book coming out. I started reading it is great. But Shannon, I off. This was one of the stories you covering yesterday. The measure that took two days to put together was basically something we learned in first grade don't be mean to people. That's how congressman Doug Collins summed it up on the floor. Don't keep people don't be mean to people. You should have learned that in kindergarten. But there were even Democrats who was frustrated with the co process, you probably saw a congressman. Democrats from quarter who happens to be Jewish should say, Vince should not be so hard. Why should it be so difficult for us to say as a caucus that we don't tamper antisemitism now? This is not the first time they've had to say that. I mean, multiple times in congress, which is only a couple of months old. So there's a lot of frustration there. And you know, there were a lot of folks who wondered why they added in everything including the kitchen sink. Now, we all know that you're not supposed to say bad things stereotype and be cool to people. But this was launched by a very specific episode at a very specific person who was not mentioned in the resolution. Yeah, here's Elliot angle chairman of four relations where she is a member on that committee. He's jewish. He condemned. Her comments a series of comments right away. You know, the whole thing where it's all about the Benjamins baby talking about why we're so pro Israeli or why the Jewish vote has so much power when she came out and said that I should not be expected to have allegiance stores or pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in congress to serve on any committee. So here's what Eliot Engel said cut four when he. So about this broad measure instead of a specific one the words spoken by our colleague from Minnesota last week touched a very real very raw place for me. And when a member of our body speaks the way, the Representative from Minnesota spoke, then we need to single out and say, we will not tolerate it. And this resolution is a fine resolution, and I will support it. But I am very disappointed that we weren't able to have a separate resolution to specifically condemn anti-semitism. And what our colleague said that really was was a very hateful turn these Democrats and was four zero seven two twenty three. No kidding. But everyone thinks we totally missed the point there. How much power these freshmen have shot? A you're in Washington every day. Are you surprised? Well, I mean, they salvaged seems to be running scared. I mean, it really does and yesterday congresswoman Cossio quartet's, Dr Chad pergram, you're producer over there in Capitol Hill and said, hey, we as freshman and is a women of color or be specifically targeted. I mean, so they're they're pulling out all the stops. And making a lot of noise and saying we're in charge work control. But you got remember to the the leaders like speaker Pelosi and others power for what gets to the four. How things are run and committee assignments she gave them committee assignments on how foreign relations, and so that is very troubling. For a lot of folks on the hill who say listen, congressman, Omar who keep stepping in this particular issue and causing a lot of trouble. And she said some formulations, and they're all kinds of people saying that's not the right place for her. The establishment folks like speaker Placide gave her this coast people call for her to go. You know, there's a lot of Democrats pointing back a Republicans. You guys aren't clean we have the moral high ground here. But you remember what happened was Steve king? He was stripped of everything. Everything jelled their so called for things to happen to these freshmen who are causing a lot of heartburn for the Democrats. They're not happy about it. Here's Cory Booker. Now. One thing about the president and gets himself in trouble. Sometimes doing it. He'll take questions at all times as a candidate businessman, and I know it because he did our show every week when he was just toasting the apprentice he wouldn't even want to minutes before we hopped on the air. What are we talking about? And he would take all questions. Listen to Cory Booker dare. I say a different philosophy cut six. So.

"The public needs to know what is going on. I demanded and I'm trying to organize everybody that I can to call for this Republic. This report to be released to the public. There's there Senate legislation if I'm not mistaken introduced today by Chuck Grassley, and Richard Blumenthal that would essentially require a public version of the report, I think with exceptions made for redacting classified information. Do you foresee something like that passing out of the house in short order? Well, I think it could pass out of the house. Let me just say this the puck. Public has been very patient. They've been waiting. We have heard bits and pieces here and there, and we want to know in the public deserves to know. And so I support the legislation that it should be made public. And if there's classified information that has to be redacted, so be it, but make this report public Steve Mnuchin was one of the people who who's been making the case about the sanctions for Ola der, pasta, the Russian oligarch, who, of course, also employed Paul Manafort had a contact since indicted intermediary named constant Kalinic who would go back and forth between them dare pastas. Businesses have essentially escaped now the sanctions acts from department of treasury because they reorganized in ways the treasury department says they're happy with a lot of people unhappy on Capitol Hill. What's your response to the administration's actions? I'm not happy with it at all. I think that the, you know at the center of this. Question about whether or not the president colluded with Russia with Putin or the oligarchs, etc. Is the question of sanctions, we know that Putin wants these sanctions lifted and I've said from the beginning that I believe in. I don't have the proof. But I believe that Manafort was set to the campaign to be there to ensure that they get Trump elected in every way, they possibly could. And this is an exchange for him lifting the sanctions and don't forget, our president has said that he believes this ancient should be listed a one way or the other. So I just believe that Mnuchin is, of course, a guided by the president they all apart of, you know, this relationship that they have with Russia and Putin and went oligarchs, I mean, when you take a look at all of the allies of this president that's involved in this whole question, you cannot help but ask yourself what's at the bottom of this. And. I think it has been asked more than one time. Why are they all lying? I think it's about sanctions. And I think is very important for us to continue to pressure to get those sanctions continued at enforce and not to do what we've just witnessed. They're trying to do. And that is be involved with de listing on the sanctions congresswoman, Maxine Waters. Thank you for your time tonight. You're welcome. Thank you next.

"From democratic senator richard blumenthal i have seen no evidence none whatsoever that would justify this criminal referral stunningly and sadly this first major action by the republican leadership of the judiciary committee is aimed at someone who reported wrongdoing rather than committed it what seems more like an effort to distract from the real priorities what should be the priorities of the committee joining us now joe wind banks former assistant watergate special prosecutor and msnbc contributor also can delaney in the intelligence and national security reporter four nbc news can let's start with you what more do we know about this potential investigation into christopher steal we'll katie this is a partisan referral by the republicans only on the new shit judiciary committee and that doesn't mean we should discount it but it's something our viewers should keep in mind and the other thing to know about it and it's classified so we don't have the exact details but i've been doing some reporting and talking to some sources and i have come away with the impression that it is essentially about what christopher seale said about his contacts with reporters apparently something that he told the fbi contradicted with something that appeared through another source and and it's important to understand too that the republicans are not even alleging that christopher steal intentionally lied here they're just saying that there was a material misstatement in a criminal investigation that's lead a lot of democrats to really question the whole premise of this why this would be a criminal referral and it's sort of underscores the extent to which charles grassley and the republicans on the judiciary committee have really been going after steel and the dossier and fusion gps the firm that hired steal four months they've been spending hours and hours of committee time investigating this matter and this appears to be one of the results jill is there any legal reason that you might want to go after christopher steal the only reason would be to divert attention from the real issue congress should be looking at what the russians did we know they interfered with our election we need to know before the next election how to stop at how to prevent them from interfering once again and what ever christopher steals possible misstatement was and as you said we don't know what it is we haven't seen it it can't be worthy of an investigation any further criminal charges.
