Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., spoke like a fascist when he vowed that “nothing is off the table” if President Trump goes forward with a nomination to replace late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to “Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin.
“What the president is doing is traditional and constitutional,” Levin, a former Reagan Justice Department official, said at the opening of Monday’s edition of “The Mark Levin Show”.
“Chuck Schumer said that if Donald Trump — who is the president for four years — nominates someone to the Supreme Court while he’s the sitting president, and the Republican Senate — while they have a majority — vote to confirm a justice to the Supreme Court … everything is on the table,” Levin stated before asking: “Does the Constitution give the Senate — let alone one senator — the power to ‘put everything on the table’?”
Schumer’s statements, Levin continued, “are the words of a fascist, of a Brownshirt, of a totalitarian.”
“The Constitution determines what’s on the table,” he continued, adding that Democrats’ ultimate goal — amid their threats and intimidation — is to create the conditions to give them permanent control of the United States and its government.
“The Democrats have already threatened — and intend to — eliminate the filibuster rule as it applies to legislation,” said Levin, who noted that such a move would render the minority party obsolete as a force for compromise.
In November 2013, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., ended the filibuster for judicial nominees — a move many observers said was meant to help President Barack Obama and a “President Hillary Clinton.”
Democrats have also threatened to give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia — a move that would all but ensure four near-permanent Democratic seats in a 104-member Senate.
