Even After Raucous, Schumer-Led Delay of Kavanaugh Hearing, Liberals Tell Schumer: Not Enough

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) may have thought he was giving far-left activists what they wanted when he orchestrated hours of unprecedented, raucous delays during the first day of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing on Tuesday.

On Wednesday morning, those far-left activists are telling Schumer: not enough.

Politico reported:

Progressive groups have a blunt assessment of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s work to defeat Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination: “You are failing us.”

Thirteen liberal groups have signed on to a letter, delivered Wednesday morning, that pans the minority leader’s strategy of stopping President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court. They say that “the Democratic Party’s progressive base expects nothing less than all-out resistance to Trump’s dangerous agenda,” and question whether Schumer is delivering it.

One group that did not sign the letter is Demand Justice, the lead liberal group opposing Kavanaugh. Demand Justice is led by Brian Fallon, a former Clinton campaign spokesman who also used to work for Schumer.

The liberal letter comes despite more than an hour of obstruction and delay tactics from Senate Judiciary Democrats on Tuesday, which started five seconds into the hearing. Schumer coordinated the theatrics, according to NBC News. According to one count, Senate Democrats interrupted the hearing 63 times in the first few hours.
