The Call – No Gorsuch Vote until #TrumpRussia investigation over #NoRussiaProbeNoSCOTUSRobe
Tell your senators that the Senate should not move forward on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court until after the investigation of the Trump’s campaign potential collusion with the Russian attack on our election. After refusing to consider Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination for more than a year after Justice Scalia’s death, Republicans are now trying to rush Gorsuch’s confirmation through the Senate while the Trump administration remains under a dark cloud as to its legitimacy. Senator Chuck Schumer [D-NY] and Senator Elizabeth Warren [D-MA] have both called for a delay and Schumer stated that it was “unseemly to move forward so fast on confirming a Supreme Court justice with a lifetime appointment while this big big gray cloud of an FBI investigation hangs over the presidency.” It is becoming clear that Judge Gorsuch’s nomination is a strategic wedge issue. Democrats succeeded in moving the Judiciary Committee vote to April 3rd, with a full Senate vote expected April 7th, and made it clear they will filibuster if necessary. The American people should know with certainty that the president who appointed Judge Gorsuch didn’t collude with Russia to swing the election.
Call your senators and tell them the Senate should not move forward on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee until the after the FBI’s investigation has concluded.
Hi. This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
I believe that the Senate should not move forward on President Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court until after the investigation has determined whether his campaign colluded with Russia. I don’t think a lifetime appointment should be made by a president whose legitimacy remains under a dark cloud.
Thanks and I greatly appreciate your time.
