Rhode Island Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse uses his position on the Senate Judiciary Committee to go on a rant against all things President Trump. He obviously has disdain for the process of the committee and one can only think that it may have something to do with the fact that it is run by the GOP and the Democrats. Without any proof, using the privilege of his position, he tries to tie these Court nominees to something called “dark money.”
As Written By Robert Kraychik for the Daily Wire:
On Wednesday, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) framed two of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees as serving the interests of “dark money.”
Whitehouse made his comments during a Senate Judiciary Committee nomination hearing for Amy Coney Barrett and Joan Larsen, who are nominated to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, respectively. Barrett is a law professor at Notre Dame Law School and Larsen is a justice of Michigan’s Supreme Court.
Barrett and Larsen, said Whitehouse, are supported by nefarious “dark money” interests:
A very significant machinery of influence… is designed… to bring the will of ideological and commercial interests into our courts in ways that will follow the wishes of those ideological and commercial interests.
[Barrett and Larsen] have been cleared by those very ideological and commercial interests for policy-making positions in the courts.
