"This judge has given us the opportunity to gain wisdom to make smarter decisions, to make a better informed decision," said Sen. Tom Carper, Delaware Democrat. "We are in a sense, voting without this information, flying blind. … It's worth waiting an extra week to get this information than voting today without it."
"It would be wholly irresponsible to vote on this nominee this week knowing that we don't have the full picture," Sen. Tom Carper, Delaware Democrat and his party's ranking member on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said Thursday night. "If we are going to do the job that the American people sent us here to do, we must carefully review this new information in order to better evaluate just what kind of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt would be."
