President Trump wants the seat filled before midterms.  With the swing vote retiring, the Court will be firmly conservative now.  A shame Congress didn't do their job and fill the seat for a full year.

And here comes the assault on personal freedoms. They will take direct aim at women’s rights and choices.

It's an election year.

Surely, they'll wait until after the election unfolds before any confirmation is done, right?

Mitch stole the last vacant seat. Let’s win the midterms and shove it back in his face.

This will be done long before the mid-terms.

Too late by then. He retires next month.  Republicans will approve new Justice well before the next congressional term.

And they will gain traction in the midterm elections because of this. Voters will come out because they will preach fear

From McConnell himself:
Quote
“The Senate stands ready to fulfill its constitutional role by offering advice and consent on President Trump’s nominee to fill this vacancy,” Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, said after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement. “We will vote to confirm Justice Kennedy’s successor this fall.”

From McConnell in 2016:
Quote
"One of my proudest moments was when I told Obama, 'You will not fill this Supreme Court vacancy,"

It's like you can't make this stuff up. Republicans who voted for Trump over Hillary - we know who you are - got exactly what they wanted. It's amazing a president can can lose the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, yet have so much impact on the next generation. And we are only 1 1/2 years in. Hang in there Ruth, we need you!
