Sen. Schumer (D-NY) in 2007: Okay to block a Supreme Court nominee for 19 months until next election

So much for consistency, as the WASHINGTON EXAMINER points out.

The GOP's blocking of Garland was of far shorter duration.

And of course, in blocking Garland, the GOP--as well as Schumer--followed the doctrine set forth by Sen. Joe Biden (D-DEL) in 1992. See this 2016 WP piece on this topic.
