Chuck Schumer thinks he has the votes to prevent 8 Democratic Senators from voting for cloture on the nomination of Neil Gorsuch, effectively creating a filibuster:

“After careful deliberation I have concluded that I cannot support Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” Mr. Schumer said, citing concerns over Judge Gorsuch’s...

According to Politico, Senate Democrats are hoping to strike a deal with Senate Republicans to ensure Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, is confirmed.

In exchange for confirmation, Politico reports, Democrats “are most likely” to request a deal that would exchange Gorsuch’s confirmation for the preservation of the filibuster...

Rather than focus on Gorsuch’s judicial qualifications and whether he would interpret and apply the law aptly, Democratic Senators on the Judiciary Committee have chosen to spend their allotted time prodding Gorsuch’s political beliefs.

There seems to be universal confusion in the Democratic camp about the role of the judiciary, and...

Sure, there were some real moments, but they were entirely focused on Democrat Senators who were made to look...

Today was Day Two in confirmation hearings for Trump Supreme Court Justice nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Senators on the Judiciary Committee took turns spending thirty minutes grilling Gorsuch.

When it was Sen. Durbin’s (D-IL) turn to bat, he flamed out. Gloriously.

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is set to begin four days of confirmation hearings on Monday.

The hearings will be led by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) for the majority, and Diane Feinstein (D-CA) for the minority. In other words, Republicans are in control of the process and there is little Democrats can...

The buzz overnight is that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch criticized President Trump for attacking the Judge who granted the TRO against the Immigration Executive Order, and also the 9th Circuit.

Both Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal and Republican Ben Sasse said the terms “disheartening” and “demoralizing” were used.

Democrats have vowed to fight the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

The leftist media repeatedly beclowned themselves chasing fascist high school club stories and Senate Democrats seem hellbent on out-sillying their media counterparts.

And that’s why Sen. Sasse’s statement is perfect. And also hilarious:

After intense blowback and promises of confirmation obstruction for Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Neil Gorsuch, Trump suggested the Senate employ the “Nuclear Option” to move Judge Gorsuch to Justice Gorsuch.

The Nuclear Option would allow the Senate to confirm Gorsuch with a simple majority as opposed to 60 votes.
