Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley slammed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday for trying to destroy Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying that the Democratic senator was responsible for the "demolition derby."
"This is the 87th day," Grassley said. "That’s three weeks longer than the average of the last three or four nominees to the Supreme Court. So don't tell me we haven't spent enough time."
"Now, this started downhill very quickly on about July 10 when Schumer said that 'we’re going to do everything we can to stop this nomination,'" Grassley continued. "He defended his process, saying “I have tried to commit and I think I have carried out what I promised immediately. That we would have a fair and thorough process. We have had a fair and thorough process."
"But what I’ve been dealing with since July 10, the downhill slope that Schumer's put us on, is really dealing with a demolition derby," Grassley declared. "They just about destroyed a good person, to be on the Supreme Court."
