Ted Cruz: Democrats Will Do Anything They Can To Delay Barrett Hearings, Even For A Day Or Two

|

Sen. Ted Cruz, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Chuck Todd Sunday on "Meet the Press" that Democrats will do anything to delay the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

Cruz said they are even using Covid-19 testing as a delay tacit prior to hearings for Judge Barrett, which are scheduled to take place this week.

"I think they are looking for anything to delay things even a day or two or three … we've managed to have hearings for months," he said.




CHUCK TODD: So you think the call for testing is a delay -- is a delay tactic?



SEN. TED CRUZ: I think they are looking for anything to delay things even a day or two or three and, and I think that Senate Republicans will follow the guidance, the medical guidance of the Capitol physician and we'll go through -- we've managed to have hearings for months in a way that has been safe and has protected everyone's safety. We do it socially distanced, we do it following medical guidance, and we'll continue following the medical guidance. But the delay tactics of the Democrats aren't going to work and I think we're going to see, by the way, some more procedural games and shenanigans. I don't know what they're going to do, whether it's try to boycott meetings or try to impeach the president but I think they're going to try to do something to delay it. It's not going to work. I believe we have the votes and I believe Judge Barrett on the merits is going to be confirmed and confirmed by the end of the month before Election Day.
