Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling for the Senate to postpone Judge Amy Coney Barrett's SCOTUS confirmation because it is “irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with a hearing” after two Judiciary Committee members tested positive for COVID-19.
“We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for COVID, and there may be more. I wish my colleagues well,” he declared Friday night.

It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with a hearing, and there is absolutely no good reason to do so.

“It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with a hearing, and there is absolutely no good reason to do so,” Schumer continued
It sounds like he is just trying to stop the inevitable. The left is doing their best to stop that seat from being filled and hoping that they can cheat President Donald Trump out of a re-election. However, deep down, I think they know that Trump will win and that seat will be filled.
Earlier on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stated that the Senate is going “full steam ahead with the fair, thorough, timely process that the nominee, the Court, & the country deserve."
Just finished a great phone call with @POTUS. He’s in good spirits and we talked business — especially how impressed Senators are with the qualifications of Judge Barrett. Full steam ahead with the fair, thorough, timely process that the nominee, the Court, & the country deserve.

Scaramucci to Trump: Drop Out Now — ‘Not Physically, Mentally Capable’
Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci sure had a lot to say when he appeared on MSNBC on Sunday. Looking for his 15 minutes of fame, he declared that President Donald Trump should drop out of the race because he's not 'fit' to debate or be president.
Scaramucci said, “The truth of the matter is he’s very sick. He’s not going to make it to the debate. Anyone who looks at this situation knows that. So it will be interesting as to what the campaign will do as a contingency plan given the fact the president is not going to make the debate next week.”
Maskhole DeWine Shames Trump: Serves as 'Cautionary Tale' to Anti-Maskers
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine is a joke. A RINO. A maskhole. I should know, I live in Ohio and I have been living under his dictator rule since COVID-19 started. He is supposed to be Republican, but he followed closely in line with Democratic governors, like Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
Over the weekend, DeWine mask shamed President Donald Trump, declaring that he hopes the POTUS' diagnosis is a "cautionary tale" for people who do not wear masks.
Founder of Proud Boys Delivers AMAZING Announcement During Interview
If former Vice President Joe Biden isn't careful about what he's doing, he's going to be broke very soon. What I mean by that is that he's going to have some serious lawsuits against him that will cost him a lot of money.
Toward the end of September, Lin Wood, who is the attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse, threatened a defamation lawsuit against Biden for attacking his client after a campaign ad he had which associated Rittenhouse with "white supremacists". He gave Biden a warning to remove the ad...yet to this day, it stands.
"Jihad" Joe Biden Showed Up at the Debate...Listen Very Closely
During the first Presidential debate of 2020, President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden started attacking each other very early on.
Sparks flew, punches were thrown (metaphorically, of course), but it was an entertaining debate when Chris Wallace kept his mouth shut long enough to let them speak.
Facebook Resumes Interference in Election by Targeting Trump Campaign Once Again
Is it any surprise that we're still seeing liberals trying to interfere with the election that is only a month away?
It's sickening that they accuse President Trump of trying to rig the election when it is 100% clear that the left is pulling out every trick they have to try and rig it for themselves.
WATCH: Ted Cruz SLAMS James Comey Over Russian Collusion Hoax
The long-awaited testimony from former FBI Director James Comey took place last week.
Of course, this isn't the first time that Comey has appeared in from of the Senate Judicary Committee, but it is the first time since learning about just how much fakery was involved in the creation of the Steele dossier and obtaining the FISA warrants.
