President Donald Trump should give special thanks to two U.S. Senators this Thanksgiving weekend. One is still serving in the Senate, the other recently retired. One is a Republican. The other a Democrat. And what should President Trump be thanking them for? Quite simply they have handed him one of the biggest victories any president could claim in the past 45 years.
Yes, this has happened even as one of the most widely covered stories of the past year has been President Trump's difficulties in working with Congress. The growing rift between him and Republican Senators John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Bob Corker alone has made headlines for months. For a U.S. president to have this many public feuds with senators from his own party this early in his presidency is really unprecedented and makes for hot news copy.
But that story ignores a bigger and longer-lasting development in the federal judiciary. That brings us first to naming the Republican gift giver: Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa. The longtime member of Congress has big time clout as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. And Grassley has just used that clout to eliminate one of the final hurdles in the already furious pace of Trump administration judicial appointments to the federal bench.
Draining the judicial swamp!
Woo hoo!! Bump for Trump!!
Winning one day at a time! More winning! I want winning for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I will never tire of winning. One the other hand...LIBs losing makes each minute even more delicious. Go President Trump...President of ALL the people. Like it or not.
For this reason alone the Republicans need to retain control of the Senate in 2018, RINOs and all.
Why the Republicans must keep the Senate at all cost. Lose the majority, lose the committee.
So basically DJT can nominate and immediately place our/his judges any time he wants, without Dummycrat interference, right? Sorry, Im still drunk from last night’s party.
Go President Trump and Senator Grassley.
Grassley is clearing the judges out of committee. Unfortunately, McConnell is still slow walking the floor votes to confirm.
Darn, it feels good see some positive happenings. It is just getting started.
I see. Looks like Mcconnell is as usual being a prick bec. he knows Moore is gonna win AL.
If president Trump was not resisted on every single thing for no other reason other than to simply resist Trump no matter what he wants, this would not he necessary. I really hope he gets reelectee with an overwhelming margin so he can fix the supreme court and make liberals cry. I am going to invest in anti anxiety pharmaceutical companies before the next election, and retire
This is wonderful news. I hope President Trump’s staff will get all of those nominations done before the next election!
About damned time!! Thanks Sen. Grassley!!

“...McConnell is still slow walking the floor votes to confirm....”
Open up a big drain under this POS.
Another plus on Grassley is his tenacious push on getting to the bottom of uraniumgate. He is applying pressure on Justice and is agreeable to launching a Senate investigation. There is little doubt that both Clintons are exposed by their greed and unethical behavior. My dad use to tell me that a pig eventually turns into a pork chop.
