Two Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) have announced that they will not meet with the SCOTUS nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee and should be doing his job during the confirmation hearings, but he has already said he would oppose her confirmation “as I would any nominee proposed as part of this illegitimate sham process, barely one month before an election as Americans are already casting their votes.”

“If Judge Barrett’s views become law, hundreds of millions of Americans living w/pre-existing conditions would lose access to their health care. In the middle of a pandemic, rushing confirmation of an extreme jurist who will decimate health care is unconscionable,” he said on Twitter.

“I will refuse to treat this process as legitimate & will not meet with Judge Amy Coney Barrett,” he tweeted.

Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii has said on CNN “I will not be meeting with her, I will take the opportunity to question her when she is under oath,” she said.

The Republicans have all the votes they need for confirmation, however, it is the job of the Senate Judiciary Committee to meet with and to go through the confirmation process, so what is the purpose of the Democrats unwillingness to meet with the SCOTUS nominee? Tantrums, anyone.
