SHOWDOWN: Senator Cotton Tells A.G. Garland: ‘Thank God You’re Not On The Supreme Court’ [SEE THIS EXCHANGE]


Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday clashed with Republican senators over the Justice Department’s efforts to crack down on violent threats against school boards, with one GOP member telling the former judge, “Thank God you’re not on the Supreme Court.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) made the remark during a heated exchange in which the senator tried to tie the Justice Department’s new school board policy to an incident in Loudoun County, Va., where a teenager was accused of assaulting a fellow student in a school bathroom.

“This testimony, your directive, your performance is shameful,” Cotton said. “Thank God, you’re not on the Supreme Court. You should resign in disgrace, judge.”

  1. In March of 2016, Obama nominated him to replace the seat vacated by the sudden passing of Antonin Scalia and the Republicans knocked off his potential appointment. Senator Cotton shot him today between the eyes!

  2. Such a bunch of children! Do these “inquiries” into Garland by noisy Senators have any point? It’s not like anyone’s voting to impeach him, so what are they yelling about? I’m sure Garland is laughing all the way to the bank…
