“We Are Screwed” Republicans Panic Over SCOTUS Confirmation Vote

  • The Washington Post’s Robert Costa reports that Republicans are asking McConnell to “take the Senate out of session next week” after multiple Republicans, including President Donald Trump and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) tested positive for Covid-19 in just the last day.
  • “If some in the Republican caucus get sick, we are screwed,” one GOP senate aide tells Costa. The idea will be to get the spread of the disease among GOP officials under control so that they can all be healthy in time to vote on Barrett in mid-October.
  • Sen. Lee on Friday said that he planned to stay in isolation for the next ten days after testing positive for the disease, with the goal of being healthy enough to work on Barrett’s confirmation in the middle of the month.
