Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said Sunday that President Trump has become a “puppet” for the Federalist Society and other outside groups in picking the next Supreme Court justice.

“The president’s outsourced his decision to the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation. It is extraordinary,” Blumenthal said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“I’ve never seen a president of the United States, in effect, make himself a puppet of outside groups, and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues that are … on this list,” he added, referring to a list of 25 potential justices from which Trump has said he’ll make his selection.
