Fog of Scandal: Senate Dems Trying to Rush Amnesty Bill to Floor, Sources Say

Gang-of-8

Just like everything else they do.
Check it out:

Senate staffers told Breitbart News that Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT) and “Gang of Eight” members appear to be attempting to use the cover of multiple scandals hitting the Obama administration to rush the proposed immigration reform bill out of committee and onto the Senate floor.

On Monday night, the Judiciary Committee worked on a markup until around 10 p.m. One Senate staffer close to the process told Breitbart News that “the expectation is that they will pull an all night session on Tuesday and try to pass the bill out of committee tomorrow.”

Another staffer, a Republican Senate aide, told Breitbart News that this is indicative of the the Gang of Eight push to pass this bill as fast as they can to minimize public scrutiny. “There is a relentless drive to push this bill through at any cost because it’s backers know that once the American people find out what’s in it they will rise up against it,” the aide said.
