Chuck Schumer: "You may win this vote... But you will never, ever, get your credibility back. And the next time the American people give Democrats a majority in this chamber, you will have forfeited your right to tell us how to run that majority."
"You walk a perilous road," Schumer tells Republicans ahead of the ACB vote. "I know you think this will eventually blow over. But you're wrong. The American people will never forget this blatant act of bad faith."
On the Senate floor before the ACB vote, Chuck Schumer quotes Mitch McConnell from 2013 saying: "You'll regret this. And you may regret it a lot sooner than you think."

He adds: "I would change just one word. My colleagues may regret this for a lot longer than they think."
Mitch McConnell ahead of the ACB vote: "This is one of the brilliant, admired and well-qualified nominees in our lifetime." He says she'll be the only justice confirmed with a law degree from "any school not named Harvard or Yale."
McConnell is on the floor saying Senate Dems "pioneered" the use of judicial filibusters. (He's correct about that.)
McConnell rebuts Schumer, says they have a different account of the judicial wars, and adds: "My version is totally accurate."
