Tom Cotton: Senate Democrats Must Be Reasonable or Face ‘Martial Law’

WASHINGTON, DC – Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) threw down the gauntlet to Senate Democrats on Thursday, telling the Federalist Society that Democrats would either agree to reasonable conditions for confirming President Donald Trump’s nominees or “face the Senate equivalent of martial law.”

Cotton delivered the opening address to the 2017 National Lawyers Convention of the Federalist Society for Law & Public Policy, the largest and most powerful group in the nation for conservative and libertarian legal thought. The three-day conference was held last week at the Mayflower Hotel in the nation’s capital.
