The two chatted quietly and gave no statements as reporters and photographers were escorted into Schumer's office to photograph them together.
Moreover, as we show below from this magazine's Freedom Index, Senator Schumer's abysmally low cumulative voting score of 13 percent over the past 18 years indicates the New York Democrat's declared reverence for the Constitution is virtually nil.
Carrie Severino, chief policy director at the conservative Judicial Crisis Network, said the Democrats are trying to please both the "radical left fringe" of their base who wants obstruction during Mr. Trump's presidency, and the majority who would like to see the nominee get an up-or-down vote.

The two have received criticism from Democrats for refusing to consider Merrick Garland, then-President Barack Obama's nomination. Many Democrats and liberals have come out against the Gorsuch nomination, because he is considered by legal scholars to be a strict conservative jurist in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, whose passing a year ago opened up the seat on the high court.
Laxalt rolled out a petition on his personal website aimed at urging the Senate to confirm the Colorado federal appellate judge tapped by President Donald Trump "without delay". "Everybody I've talked to agrees he should get a hearing and an up-or-down vote", Shaheen said. Confirmation of Garland would have created the first Democratic-appointed majority on the Court in decades, and the likely confirmation of Gorsuch instead represents a significant change. "Because this is a lifetime appointment, this is as big as it gets". Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, Rep. Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services, or Steve Mnuchin for Secretary of the Treasury.
Ron Bonjean, who is leading communications for Gorsuch during the confirmation process, confirmed Gorsuch called Trump's tweet about the "so-called judge" "disheartening" and "demoralizing" in his conversation with Blumenthal. Few constitutionalists would quarrel with the senator on that statement, except that it is not only the most important factor "in the time of the Trump administration", but in every administration, including the Obama administration, from the agony of which we have just been delivered. But when it comes to the court itself, this hostility ultimately traces back to 1987, when Senate Democrats rejected the nomination of Robert Bork purely on ideological grounds. While 39 percent of Americans support keeping it in place, 35 percent say the court should overturn the ruling, which ruled that closely held corporations could cite religious objections to the federal health care law.
