This morning the Senate Judiciary Committee is voting on the nomination of Steven Menashi, one of the MOST extreme and LEAST forthcoming nominees I have ever encountered in 45 years in the Senate. There are many reasons to vote no on his nomination; here are just a few:
(1), Mr. Menashi repeatedly refused to answer basic Qs from BOTH Republicans and Democrats on Committee. But there is no ‘taking the Fifth’ in nominations. A nominee who so casually disregards our duty to provide advice & consent does not deserve a lifetime judgeship.
(2), his refusal to answer Qs may be bc he's got a lot to hide. A rprt last night revealed Menashi devised an ILLEGAL plan to deny debt relief to 1000s of students scammed by a defunct for-profit school. The fact that we learned about this hrss before his vote is deeply troubling
(3), in 2010 he claimed that "ethnic diversity weakens social solidarity." In a nation whose proud motto is E Pluribus, Unum (Out of Many, One) such a statement is at odds with our very identity. I will vote no on Steven Menashi.
