If that is true – then that is where Schumer is guilty of obstruction of justice.
If Schumer and the Democrats are being obstructionist about filling various jobs, there should be some way the other members should be able to fine him for not doing his job to help run the government.
Senators on both sides of the aisle, it is time to get off the pot. The leader is working short-handed to get our country back on track again; and, you, Democrat Senators are not doing your job and are holding up the country by not showing up for work to vote and causing our country to be unsafe.

“The Senate obviously has the constitutional responsibility for advice and consent,” said Short who then proceeded to describe “what that looks like in real life.”
