The Senate started the Supreme Court confirmation process for Amy Coney Barrett.
Democrats know their backs are against the wall and are desperate to come up with a strategy to destroy her nomination.
And now you won’t believe what Kamala Harris did to stop Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation.
Democrats know walking into this fight the Republicans have the votes to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
That means Democrats only hope of derailing her confirmation is a gimmick play to scuttle the process of holding a vote.
Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris took the lead on this front falsely claiming Republicans were endangering lives by holding Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings because judiciary committee members Thom Tillis and Mike Lee tested positive for coronavirus.
“By moving forward with Supreme Court confirmation hearings tomorrow—less than 2 weeks after members tested positive—Chairman Graham and Senate Republicans are endangering the lives of not just members and our staff, but the hardworking people who keep the Senate complex running,” Harris wrote on social media prior to the opening day of Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearing.
When the confirmation hearing started Harris appeared “virtually” from her office in California and continued to slam the GOP without citing any evidence for putting lives at risk by holding this confirmation hearing.
“This hearing has brought together more than 50 people to sit inside of a closed-door room for hours while our nation is facing a deadly, airborne virus,” Harris ranted.
“This committee has ignored common sense requests to keep people safe, including not requiring testing for all members despite a coronavirus outbreak among senators of this very committee,” Harris added. “… The decision to hold this hearing now is reckless and places facility workers, janitorial staff, and professional aides, and Capitol Police at risk.”
Thanks to a fake news media campaign of false hysteria, lies and misinformation the public wrongly believes Donald Trump “bungled” the response to the coronavirus pandemic.
That is incorrect.
The only mistake was on the part of Dr. Fauci and the rest of so-called “experts” that pushed disastrous shutdowns that did nothing to slow the spread of the virus and threw 40 million Americans out of work.
Harris is hoping that by trying to make the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings a coronavirus issue Democrats can use the poll numbers on the virus to pressure Republicans to delay the hearings.
If Joe Biden wins the election it will be because the public bought into the fake news media’s false claims and disinformation about the pandemic.
And now Kamala Harris is trying to make that a “two-fer” by trying to not only swing the election, but disrupt the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings with false and misleading claims about the coronavirus.
