“Senate Republicans believe ‘advice and consent’ means performing the theater of a hearing without scrutinizing the nominee in the least,” Alliance for Justice president Nan Aron said in a statement Wednesday. “Today’s vote shows Senate Republicans are already confident that she will advance their agenda.”

She will cause irreparable harm to the lives of the American people.”
