Senator Bennet, your email address doesn’t work.

I emailed my Senator a few weeks ago to oppose Gorsuch being appointed to the Supreme Court. His response seems to indicate he thinks Trump nominees are still worthy of consideration. That’s an absurd stance since they have been found to be lying under oath during the confirmation process.

Here is Senator Bennet’s response:

Dear Gregory:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the current vacancy on the Supreme Court.

On January 31, 2017, President Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve on the Supreme Court. He has served on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals since 2006.  Gorsuch clerked for Judge David Sentelle on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and for Supreme Court Justices Byron White and Anthony Kennedy. He also served as the Principal Deputy to the Associate Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice.

I take seriously the Senate’s constitutional responsibility to thoroughly vet Judge Gorsuch. I intend to review his record carefully in the coming weeks. Rest assured, I will keep your thoughts and concerns in mind throughout the confirmation process.

I value the input of fellow Coloradans in considering the wide variety of important issues and legislative initiatives that come before the Senate. I hope you will continue to inform me of your thoughts and concerns.

For more information about my priorities as a U.S. Senator, I invite you to visit my website at http://bennet.senate.gov/. Again, thank you for contacting me.

Below is my response


Senator, thanks for your response.

He has served on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals since 2006.  Gorsuch clerked for Judge David Sentelle on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and for Supreme Court Justices Byron White and Anthony Kennedy. He also served as the Principal Deputy to the Associate Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice.
 
None of this matters. You should be working to delay each and every nomination by Trump because the longer we delay them the less damage he can cause.
 
There should be no more confirmations until Sessions has resigned for lying under oath during his confirmation process. How can you trust anything that any Trump nominee has said in any hearing until it is clear that they take not lying to Congress seriously?

Alas… it seems he doesn’t want to accept email responses…
