DEMAND JUSTICE STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO SENATE DEMOCRATS REFUSING TO CUT ANY NEW DEALS ON TRUMP JUDGES

WASHINGTON, DC—Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon released the following statement Wednesday after it was announced that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will not agree to a deal to confirm a package of Trump judicial nominees:

“For those of us who have been trying to provoke a state of alarm about Donald Trump’s takeover of our courts, this is a huge breakthrough. Especially after last week’s ruling against the Affordable Care Act, it makes no sense for Democrats to continue to let their guard down when it comes to lifetime appointments to the federal bench. This shows the power that progressive activists can have when they choose to make a stand. We are grateful to the Senate Democratic leadership for drawing a line in the sand once and for all.”
