Today’s Action: Save SCOTUS from an illegitimate confirmation

The Senate Judiciary Committee begins hearings today on Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s anti-abortion, anti-healthcare, and pro-Trump nominee for Supreme Court. Republicans plan to push through her committee hearings by October 22, giving Mitch McConnell time to confirm her within days of the election.

Why the historic rush, and against all safety protocols as Republican members of the Senate continue to test positive…or refuse to get tested? It isn’t just the GOP’s last chance to pack the courts for decades of right-wing decisions, as they have done the past four years. It’s also to secure a pro-Trump SCOTUS that would side with him in the case of a contested election…which Trump has every intention of doing.

We don’t have the votes to stop this illegitimate process – yet. So we need Republicans to feel the heat, and Democrats to do everything in their power to slow and stop this mockery of the democratic process.

Call, email and tweet at your Senators:

Tell DEMOCRATS to use EVERY procedural tool at their disposal over the next three months to slow or block each step of the SCOTUS confirmation – and every other judicial confirmation – until we have a new President. Including: the “two-hour rule,” refusing consent to slow down all legislation, denying quorum, points of order and roll call votes, and delaying the committee vote.

Tell REPUBLICANS that this vote is now a public health crisis and convening with the pandemic inside the halls of Congress is an unacceptable risk for an already-illegitimate confirmation process. Demand they vote against moving forward with the proceedings or confirming any nominee before we have a new President.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg  would be proud of our fight – in fact, she explicitly called for it before her death. Remember her spirit and passion for justice as you make your daily calls.
