I seriously am questioning Sen. Chuck Grassley’s true motivation as he serves as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
He stated in an earlier comment that he would again honor the “Biden Rule” (mythical) if the situation arose again. He then stated that the rule applies only during presidential election years and he will move quickly to schedule his committee members to review and vote on President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy. OK, he is a Republican. However, he has trumpeted his defense of our Constitution and yet he chose to ignore it during the last Supreme Court vacancy where the president was denied the “advice and consent” of Congress, albeit a Republican Congress.
Sen. Grassley represents 1 percent of the Senate and about 1 percent of the U.S. population. What gives him the right to deny the remaining 99 percent their rights as defined in the Constitution?
