Klobuchar says she has 15 quotes from Republicans that she will put in the record.
9:55 AM: Blumenthal now speaking again. He says he wants a roll call vote on his motion to suspend the hearings indefinitely after everyone gets a chance to speak. He says there are very few written rules in the Senate and the most important rule is the unwritten rule of keeping your word/promises. He says Republicans promised after Garland that “never would a Supreme Court nominee be considered in an election year.” Blumenthal accuses Republicans of “breaking that word.”
9:47 AM: Leahy, attending the hearing virtually, finally gets to speak. He says we are now officially through the looking glass and says Graham should stick to what he said about Merrick Garland’s nomination.
