American Bridge Calls For Pausing SCOTUS Hearing in Light of Ongoing FBI Investigation

American Bridge Chairman David Brock released the following statement:

“Director Comey’s testimony yesterday made clear that President Trump has misled the country with a false allegation that President Obama ordered a wiretap on him. Director Comey also revealed that there is an on-going FBI investigation on Russian interference in the 2016 election — an investigation that may well implicate the President and his top aides and associates in a criminal conspiracy. As such, American Bridge is calling on the U.S. Senate to hit the pause button on the Supreme Court nomination hearings until such time as the investigation is complete, its results are known to the public, and any perpetrators are brought to justice. We cannot place a Justice on the Supreme Court with so much hanging in the balance, in a cloud of presidential scandal regarding a potentially shocking undermining of our democratic system of government and treason by members of the Trump campaign. If the Judiciary Committee will not halt the hearings, Democrats should walk out and refuse further participation.”
