In a new statement issued after Judge Amy Coney Barrett was officially confirmed to the Supreme Court, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accuses President Trump “Supreme Court manipulation.”
Pelosi also calls Trump filling the vacancy left by Justice Ginsburg “an act of supreme desperation” and refers to Barrett’s confirmation as a “usurped Supreme Court seat.”
Pelosi concludes “We must have a Congress that is prepared to remedy what the Supreme Court will do to undermine the health, financial security and well-being of American families.”
President Trump and Senate Republicans have committed an act of supreme desperation: jamming through a Supreme Court nominee just eight days before Election Day as part of their years-long campaign to destroy Americans’ health care.
