He then engaged in a debate with Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) about approving nominees, the filibuster, the change in Senate rules on filibustering nominees, and who was responsible for gridlock in the Senate.
