Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley announced he was going to move forward with scheduling a hearing for an extreme Trump judicial nominee -- one who is on Trump’s list for possible Supreme Court justices -- despite the fact that he has not received approval from both home-state senators for going forward. Obliterating more than 100 years of Senate traditions, and in the face of his own promises not to do so, he has now scheduled the hearing for judicial nominee David Stras for next Wednesday.
Stras is one of the judges on Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees – and a commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade is a requirement for anyone on that list. As a state Supreme Court justice, David Stras has ruled against the rights of children with disabilities, sexual assault survivors, and workers discriminated against on the job. He is absolutely the wrong choice for a lifetime seat on a federal court of appeals.
This move is outrageous -- demand Grassley and the SJC halt this hearing!
