For all the bitching and whining the Democrats have been doing the last few days on the Neil Gorsuch SCOTUS confirmation, this comes as a bit of a surprise.
Yesterday we saw the house Democrats ask the most asinine questions about his past and how how he would judge laws in the Supreme Court. This, of course, coming from the most corrupt side of the political coin is laughable at best. But given how expertly Gorsuch has performed under pressure, the liberals are scrambling and looking for ways to stop the confirmation from happening.
Looks like Gorsuch, however, will be confirmed after all.
The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a commitment from Republicans not to kill the filibuster for a subsequent vacancy during President Donald Trump’s term. The next high court opening could alter the balance of the court, and some Democrats privately argue that fight will be far more consequential than the current one.
If Democrats move ahead with the plan — it’s still in the early discussion phase — it would require buy-in from some Republicans, but not necessarily Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) or his top deputies.
Here is the ongoing hearing:
This really sticks it in the craw of all the liberals trying to bash him and, subsequently, Trump for this SCOTUS, pick. Gorsuch will make a fantastic SCOTUS judge. Who else agrees!?
