    Leahy has been a senator since 1975. 45 years. Think about how insane that is.

    Thank you Twitter, for deleting posts about the Biden’s corruption. Now the World Media knows the Biden’s are corrupt. Facebook and Twitter have done Trump a huge favour. This is front page news in UK, Australia, NZ, and the EU. The world knows that the Democrats, Biden’s and Clinton’s, and Obama were corrupt.

    This old guy…Leahy demonstrates anti-American values… at this age. HOW do democrats sleep at night after the thrashing they gave Supreme Court Justice Amy Barrett! Disgusting! LEAHY DOES NOT UNDERSTAND nor likely has any idea… WHAT BIG TECH IS DOING FOR HIS PARTY!

    If he feels he wasn't giving all information about ACB its his bad. It's called doing your own research. Complaining and whining is getting old

    Remember when ole Harry used the nuclear option? Republicans warned you demonrats. Both the White House and the Senate is controlled by one party. It’s a done deal. Go away you old career tax hog. You demonrats would have done exactly the same thing if you had the opportunity!

    Fox posted two Democrat Senator hearing rebuttals in a row without posting anything from a Republican senator…

    Threats of packing the Supreme Court, statehood for Puerto Rico and DC, amnesty and citizenship for all undocumented immigrants. Yeah, you could certainly make the case for one side making a massive power grab.
    And it’s the desperate Democrats.

    Leahy is a sore looser. He is smart enough to know that the President is duty bound to put forward a nominee. Shame on Leahy for making this political. Mrs Barrett is over qualified. Leahy should apologize and resign.

    A President and Senate carrying out their constitutional duties is "a callous political power grab"?

    Sorry, you’re totally WRONG or political correct. The constitution is right in front of you! Article II, section 2, clause 2. GOP & President is fulfilling their duty.
