Sen. Chris Coons (D): “We Sad And Regret Changing The Filibuster Rules Because Now We Won’t Be Able To Block Trump”

Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) went on CNN’sAt This Hour” on Tuesday and announced that he regretted the changes they made in regards to filibusters on nominees “because it would have been a terrific speed bump, potential emergency break, to have in our system to slow down the confirmation of extreme nominees.”

Coons claims that the changes Democrats made to the rules means that “the filibuster no longer acts as an emergency brake on the nomination.

When questioned if he regretted the changes that were made, Coons answered, “I do regret that. I frankly, think many of us will regret that in this Congress, because it would have been a terrific speed bump, potential emergency break, to have in our system to slow down the confirmation of extreme nominees.”
