Thirteen liberal groups have signed a letter criticizing Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s handling of the Brett Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court, Politico is reporting.

The letter was delivered to Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday, according to the website.

“Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead your caucus in complete opposition to (President Donald) Trump’s attempted Supreme Court takeover and to defend everyone threatened by a Trump Supreme Court,” the letter reads. “But unbelievably, nearly two dozen Democrats have still not come out against Kavanaugh. . . That is not the leadership we need.”

Those signing the letter include CREDO, Indivisible and Democracy for America, Politico noted.

In the letter, they say “the Democratic Party’s progressive base expects nothing less than all-out resistance to Trump’s dangerous agenda.”

And the letter says Schumer is “failing us.”

Democrats at the Kavanaugh hearing on Tuesday protested for well over an hour. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., later accused them of trying to politicize the court.
