Short Link to this Quote:
Chuck Schumer is criticizing how he believes courts have been influenced by “dark money” contributions from undisclosed sources. He is arguing that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republican senators have helped special interest groups capture the courts by appointing judges who will rule based on their ideological preferences, rather than impartiality.
Schumer asserts that these judges are being “planted” through a “twisted web” of dark money funding aimed at rewriting the Constitution to advance certain policy priorities. Overall, he is accusing Republicans of inappropriately influencing the judicial system through secret political donations.
