Objecting to their own request

Usually when a Senator says, “I object to my own request,” it's for Senate procedural reasons. Not this time. Senate Democrats have repeatedly requested to debate “a law enforcement reform bill.”

Democratic Leader Schumer requests:

June 1, 2020: “Leader McConnell should commit to put a law enforcement reform bill on the floor of the Senate before July 4.”

June 2, 2020: “Leader McConnell, commit to putting law enforcement reform legislation on the floor before July 4.”

June 3, 2020: “Will our Republican colleagues join us? Leader McConnell, commit to put a law enforcement reform bill on the floor of the Senate before July 4.”

June 4, 2020: “Make a commitment here and now to the American people that we will put on the floor--that you will put on the floor police reform and racial justice legislation this month.”

June 8, 2020: “Now is the time for Leader McConnell to commit to putting police reform on the floor of the Senate before July 4 to be debated and voted on.”

June 9, 2020: “Now there is a full 4 weeks remaining before July 4. I say to Leader McConnell: commit to a police reform bill on the Senate floor.”
