Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley made the following statement regarding Senator Chuck Schumer’s call to delay a vote on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, “while this big gray cloud of an FBI investigation hangs over the presidency.”

Here is Grassley’s quote.

“Anybody watching the hearing of Judge Gorsuch can see that he’s as well-qualified a nominee for the Supreme Court as we’ve had.  He continues to clear every hurdle the Democrats place in front of him.  So, once again, Senator Schumer grasps at yet another straw and creates another standard.   The latest is the ridiculous idea that Judge Gorsuch should be held up because of the phony claim that the President is under criminal investigation, when Director Comey said nothing of the sort.”
