All of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote a letter to Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, urging him to delay the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett after two Senators on the committee tested positive for Covid-19.

“To proceed at this juncture with a hearing to consider Judge Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court threatens the health and safety of all those who are called upon to do the work of this body,” the letter said.

The letter called the idea of moving forward with the hearing “a disservice to the American public.”

Earlier Saturday: Graham released a statement saying he intends to move forward with the hearing.
