He’s never tried a case. He condemned women’s rights and diversity. He refused to answer senators’ questions. He may be tied up in Trump's Ukraine scandal. Senate Republicans just confirmed Steven Menashi to be a lifetime federal judge anyway.

Today the Senate confirmed Steven Menashi to a lifetime federal judgeship. Menashi: - Helped Stephen Miller craft the family separation policy - Wrote offensive remarks about women, Muslims, & the LGBTQ community - Has never even tried a case Even for Republicans, this is low.

Steven Menashi’s record includes extreme views on reproductive rights, campus sexual assault, LBGTQ rights, and you name it. When he came before the Judiciary Committee, he told us to disregard everything he’d written and said before. Give me a break.

This is Steven Menashi, an extreme, partisan judicial nominee. Here he is defending an op-ed he helped write praising students for convincing their university to let a campus group ban gay people from being officers. Imagine being an LGBTQ litigant & having him as your judge.

Soon, we will be voting on whether extreme @realDonaldTrump  judicial nominee Steven Menashi deserves a lifetime seat on the federal bench. The problem is… he refused to answer ANY of our questions, Republicans and Democrats alike.

Steven Menashi concocted a plan to illegally use the private Social Security data of defrauded student borrowers to deny them debt forgiveness after they were preyed upon by for-profit schools This is someone Pres. Trump wants us to make a federal judge?

Let me repeat: Steven Menashi concocted a plan to illegally use the private Social Security data of defrauded student borrowers to deny them debt forgiveness after they were preyed upon by for-profit schools His nomination to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals is an embarrassment

I’ll vote against Steven Menashi tomorrow in the Judiciary Committee—vehemently & vigorously opposing his nomination. His record is a disgrace. He’d degrade civil rights, the rule of law, & the court itself: a new low among Trump judicial picks.

A judge is supposed to uphold and interpret the law, have a reverence for the law. Not someone who schemes to break it. Steven Menashi’s nomination is an embarrassment and an insult to millions of hardworking Americans saddled by student debt.

Steven Menashi was the top legal schemer behind Betsy DeVos’s anti-student agenda and her efforts to bilk student borrowers. He shouldn’t be rewarded with a lifetime appointment to the federal bench.
