Republican senators expressed anger after Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin refused to allow them to speak about judicial nominations being put to a vote.

Durbin dismissed their requests, leading to objections and warnings from Republican senators about the consequences of shutting down debate.

“There’s going to be a lot of consequences,” Sen. Tom Cotton said.

“You’re gonna have a lot of consequences coming if you go down this road. I’ve cautioned a lot of you,” Cotton added.

“Listen to me. I’ve cautioned a lot of you.”

“You’re telling us to shut up? You want us to shut up?” Sen. Marsha Blackburn said.

“A lot of people didn’t speak on the two nominees before,” added Sen. Lindsey Graham.

“We want to tell you again why these nominees are awful,” he said.

“You’re just going to sit there and ignore us?” Cotton interjected.

“Is your plan to end all debate? Do you have an answer, or are you going to rely on someone whispering in your ear?” Cotton pressed.

“I guess Sen. Durbin is not going to allow women speak either. I thought that was sacrosanct in your party,” Cotton said after Blackburn was ignored.

“Mr. Chairman, you just destroyed one of the most important committees in the United States Senate,” Sen. John Cornyn said.

“You have set a precedent, which will be repeated every time one party or the other takes advantage and takes the low road — it sets a precedent that will then become the norm. Congratulations on destroying the United States Senate Judiciary Committee,” he added.

“What goes around comes around.”

The panel then proceeded to vote on the nomination of Seth Aframe to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

The representative for Durbin later stated that he followed precedent in his actions.
