" In an interview on MSNBC Thursday, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who was on the debate stage in Detroit Wednesday night, accused Senate Democrats of not doing everything in their power to stop Trump's judicial picks because they want to leave town for August recess."They've approved his judge selections so they can go on recess.
