IOWA — Iowans will deliver more than 130,000 signatures to Senator Chuck Grassley tomorrow at his offices in Des Moines and Waterloo, calling on him to stop rubber-stamping the judicial nominations made by President Trump.
The signatures come from Iowans and Americans who want their senators to provide a check on President Trump, not to give him a rubber stamp. Unfortunately, Senate Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley, in his powerful position as Chair of the Judiciary Committee, have pushed through twice as many judicial nominees than were confirmed at this point during President Obama’s term.
