DEMAND JUSTICE STATEMENT ON TIM SCOTT DECISION TO OPPOSE THOMAS FARR

WASHINGTON, DC—Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon issued the following statement Thursday after Tim Scott announced he would oppose Farr, all but ending the potential for the controversial nominee to be confirmed by the Senate during this Congress:

“Donald Trump’s takeover of the courts is not inevitable. The successful campaign against Thomas Farr is a credit to the organizing work against his nomination that has taken place over the last year and it proves what progressives are capable of when they resolve to fight back against Trump’s judges. Thomas Farr had no business being a federal judge, but neither do most of Donald Trump’s judicial nominees. The difference here is that Senate Democrats united early against this nominee, mounted a real fight, and made Republicans feel the pressure. This is the blueprint that must be followed for every major Trump nominee from now on.”
