Schumer Vows GOP Will ‘Regret’ Barrett Confirmation, Democrats Plan Retaliation


After Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Monday evening, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) warned Republicans that they will live to “regret this.” “The Republican majority is lighting its credibility on fire … The next time the American people give Democrats a majority in this chamber, you will have forfeited the right to tell us how to run that majority,” Schumer said during a floor speech before the confirmation vote. “My colleagues may regret this for a lot longer than they think,” he added. Schumer complained that Republicans, who control the Senate and the White House, moved before the election to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died last month at age 89.
