President Donald Trump’s nominee to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat of the late Antonin Scalia has yet another hurdle to clear before he is confirmed, as the Senate Democrats on Monday delayed an initial committee vote for one week.
The Judiciary Committee met at noon on Monday, reaching their decision based on objections from Democrats who expressed discontent with a number of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s answers during his confirmation hearing that began March 20.
The decision follows statements from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who said a delay is necessary due to the FBI’s ongoing investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The Associated Press reported that Gorsuch’s opponents believe his rulings are pitted against workers and in favor of businesses, as well as some who claim he would not make rulings independent from Trump.
Reminders to Democrats Truth Bites
McConnell urged his colleagues to give Gorsuch “the up or down vote he deserves.”
delay is necessary due to the FBI’s ongoing investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“Judicial philosophy is important, and he just wouldn’t go there,” Hirono said in an interview shortly after she announced her opposition.
in the words of a press release announcing the event — “people harmed by Judge Gorsuch decisions,” who “raise serious concerns about [Gorsuch’s] record of siding against working Americans, for the powerful few.”
Washington Post – “To fix inequality, Democrats are pushing unions” March 13, 2015
Sen. Charles Schumer – “I’d make it easier,” the third-ranking Democrat in the Senate said, “to form unions.” ““I think the Republican destruction of unions just kills the middle class.” “Expanding union membership, he added, “is gaining more currency.”
In other words while members have found moxy at times in front of the cameras thanks to Trump taking all the heat, as usual when it comes time to “fish or cut bait” Republicans still think cutting bait and dancing to the Democrat/liberal tune is their role in congress.
Stop letting the Democrats have their way at every turn or being polite. While I don’t agree with some of Trump’s cracks on Twitter or his actions, this has become the only strategy able to divert momentum and pull the plug on the lefts’ hot air balloon. The best way to shut down a bully and divert idiocy is to stand and follow through on statements not turn tail.
Every backpedal or little victory on their part simply strengthens their bombastic attempts to save their socialist/globalist agenda.
Amazing how a select few fight to keep our constitution and republic together while the usual suspects remain on the edge of a black hole controlled by the Democrats. Their best attack is stupidity and obfuscation while everyone competes to see who bluffs better.
The Trump train has a lot of Rino cars. They need to find their way to the bottom of the swamp along with every thief, liar, and Obama ghoul.
