The Sheldon Whitehouse Juggernaut Day 4 -- On The Rule of "Because We Can"

... the rule of "Because we can," which is the rule that is being applied today, is one that leads away from a lot of the traditions and comities and values that the Senate has long embodied...

Don't think that when you have established the rule ... that should the shoe be on the other foot ... your credibility ... will die in this room and on that Senate floor ...

don't think that there are two separate rules. That when there is Republican majority the rule is "because we can," and when there is a Democrat majority the rule is "oh no you can't do it that way." ...

YOU put that threat in play ... by putting that threat in your party platform, you have no standing to criticize us for taking it seriously. That's what YOU said -- reverse the Obamacare cases, reverse Roe v Wade, reverse Obergafell...

While we express our dismay and concern about the significant and disturbing procedural anomalies that are happening in this nomination, ALL of the last three nominations have been characterized by significant and disturbing procedural anomalies.

All three. The Garland to Gorsuch episode, the Kavanaugh confirmation, and now this one. There is a commonality to that, that is very disturbing, and that suggests the presence of outside forces and interests that are driving these conspicuous, disturbing anomalies...

The clues are obvious that something is happening behind all of these significant and disturbing procedural anomalies. And I for one intend to find out exactly what has been going on. It has been going on behind front groups, and using anonymous money.

That was not, I don't think, what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they stood up this robust democracy -- that big sneaky interests would hide behind phony front groups and use secret money to get their way. That is not what generations of Americans fought and bled and died for.

And I make a commitment here that I will spend every effort that I must to get to the bottom of why these anomalies have taken place."

1. Yes: Sheldon Whitehouse

He unmasks the criminal mind. For us lowly citizens, it's all about what are we going to do about this and so many other corruptions exposed.
