Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed Republicans for pushing through Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation to the Supreme Court on Monday. Barrett was sworn in at the White House shortly after her confirmation.
"You will never, never get your credibility back," Schumer told Republicans in a speech on the Senate floor.
He added that the impact of this will never blow over and warned Republicans that they have no right to tell Democrats how to behave when they have the majority.
Barrett was confirmed in a 52-48 vote along party lines. Her confirmation will give the Supreme Court a 6-3 conservative majority.
Democrats pushed back on her confirmation, which comes a week prior to the November presidential election. She is the first justice to be confirmed while voting is already underway.
Democrats also accused Republicans for pushing her nomination through after they had blocked former President Barack Obama's pick in 2016 because it was an election year.
Only Republican Sen. Susan Collins voted against Barrett's nomination.
