GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy utterly unloaded on Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday; calling out the Democrat’s recent speech where he publicly stated he opposed Trump’s judicial nominee because of his skin color.
Schumer found himself in hot-water this week after he said he would “vote no” on a Trump nominee because he was a white male replacing two “scuttled” African-American candidates; adding that the courts should represent the racial diversity of the “America it represents.”
“I hate to interrupt Senator Schumer with facts. But one nominee was withdrawn because of a significant bond issue, while the other became the Chief Justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court,” tweeted Gowdy.

“In addition, Senator Schumer did not oppose a recent white nominee in South Carolina also nominated by President Trump,” he added. “Marvin Quattlebaum is uniquely well qualified for the bench and universally respected by all in South Carolina. Hopefully Senator Schumer can find a way to look at really unusual factors (like qualifications) in the future.”
