Trump, Pence moving quickly on Supreme Court pick

431 posts in this topic


The list is made up of mostly federal appellate court judges including Judge William Pryor, Diane Sykes, Steven Colloton, Neil Gorsuch, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman.
 
Manchin said he and Pence did not talk about a specific potential nominee, but was told it would be from the list of 20. "If you're a Democrat, you can assume it's going to be somebody conservative. That's a given," Manchin said.
 
The Federalist Society's Leonard Leo, Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint and some senators are involved in the process, Trump said.

 

 

Thank goodness President Donald Trump will get to make this nomination (and hopefully a few more) instead of a raging leftist like Hillary.

 

Shaping the court for the next generation was truly the prize up for grabs last November.

Yes, a 1000 year clown reich requires an enabling panel of stooges at the highest level of the court.  All autocrats subjugate the courts as their first act.

 

Feeling bitter much?  :D  :lol:

There shouldn't be a litmus test. A SCJ should know the law, and to interpret it as it was written, NOT to legislate from the bench. If Trump appoints a partisan , he is no better than the dems.

Don't you think Judge Merrick Garland was a good nominee?

Unfortunately because of what Obama has done Trump needs to appoint a young extreme Bork type to balance out the court.

The Supreme Court seat being, essentially, stolen from a Democratic president in order to maintain a conservative majority for which is now going on for generations, is a violation of our democratic principles, impugns the dignity of our democratic institutions. A permanent consensus, such as what the Republicans seek, is the antithesis of a democratic nation.

 

We're like a banana Republic; complete, soon enough, with a president who enriches himself through his public office.

If I were the Democrats, I wouldn't resist at all, including a filibuster. Particularly if the nominee is actually awful from a functional law standpoint. Don't even show up for the committee or Senate proceedings, don't vote. Just let it be.

I think your boy got some Independents.

 

Some Dems either didn't vote, or voted for 3rd part candidates.

 

They may exist, but haven't personally met a Dem that voted for Trump. Although my neighbor, a lifelong Republican, voted for Hillary.

NO just people from the Democratic party. Prior to the election it was about 20% of the democrats voting for Trump. I wonder what the final vote count was for Dems voting for Trump
