Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand wrongly stated that no Democrat voted for Neil Gorsuch and had to walk that statement back in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo Thursday night.
“He didn’t get a vote from one Democrat. And I believe now that we’ve seen what Gorsuch has done in the court, he’s already undermined women’s rights, already union rights, already civil rights in this country, I don’t think people are going to trust that President Trump isn’t going to do what he said he was going to do,” Sen. Gillibrand stated.
“Are you right that he didn’t get one vote? Didn’t he get three?” the CNN anchor asked.
After holding strong one more time, she finally realized her mistake.
“You might be right, Chris, but I believe this Democratic caucus will stand together. You’re really deciding whether or not you value women and you want them to have basic civil rights and civil liberties.”
Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp and Joe Donnelly all voted in for Gorsuch.
Gillibrand was on CNN discussing the new vacancy on the Supreme Court with the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy being announced earlier this week. (RELATED: Kennedy Calls It Quits: Longtime Swing Justice Hands Trump The Biggest Gift Of His Presidency)
