BREAKING NEW GROUND Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) is a disingenuous hypocrite.

But the problem with the way that Senator Schumer approaches a judicial confirmation process and his colleagues on the Democratic side is they are politicizing the process. They are threatening the independence of the judiciary by insisting that people commit to making certain decisions once they assume the bench.
