RIP. Love her ideology or hate it, she was a giant in her field.Politically, things just got ratcheted up to 1000. What do vulnerable Republicans like Susan Collins do?
RIP Ruth. You were a beacon of hope.Is it possible that Trump - possibly the President with the lowest character in our lifetime, who didn’t even win the popular vote, gets to pick; not one, not two but three Supreme Court judges?This is surreal.
Regardless of election results, will the current senate be able to nominate and approve through January? If so, I wouldn’t put it past them. Would you?
If the GOP hypocritically pushes a nominee through after what they did to Merrick Garland there will be no peace. We will literally be on the brink of another civil war.This is the absolute worst thing that could have happened to America right now. The GOP has a chance to extend an olive branch and show they still care about our democracy and the Constitution. I hope they make the right choice.
the Democrats seem defeated on this issue. So sad, such a weak party. They know what is coming. Trump will nominate a conservative to Justice Ginsburg's seat. The Republicans that truncated Merrick Garland's nomination will confirm.The truth is Trump has right to nominate. Any Democrat that argued that Obama had the right to a vote on Garland but now argues Trump does have the right to an up or down vote on his nominee is a hypocrite, driven by politics and devoid of moral clarity. What really needs to be done is a reformation of the Apex Court. No institution should be as powerful as the SCOTUS.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court will be put to the Senate floor for a vote — setting off a titanic political clash over the high court.“President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate,” the Kentucky Republican said in a statement.
