Rep. Jim Clyburn to Senators on the filibuster: “Legislative matters are one thing. Constitutional rights are another.”

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn has suggested a “carve out” option which would keep the filibuster intact but allow an exception for something as “fundamental” to democracy as voting rights. Rep. Clyburn tells Ali Velshi that while he doesn’t want him “jeopardizing his position with the Senators,” no one’s constitutional rights should be jeopardized by the procedural tradition.. President Biden talks about fighting voter suppression, but he hasn't yet thrown his support behind what seems to be the only tool Congressional Democrats have to shut down this effort - ending the Senate Filibuster.
