Two Senate Democrats On Judiciary CMTE Will Not Meet With Trump's SCOTUS Pick
Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are refusing to meeting Trump's SCOTUS pick.
Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) do not believe she's legitimate and do not want to put any stamp of approval on her nomination.
Sens. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), two of the 10 Democrats on the panel, will not hold informational meetings with Barrett. The meetings aren't required, but they are a tradition, and they allow for a senator to privately question a Supreme Court pick before a hearing.
