Skip to comments.Democrats lose top fighter against Trump's judicial nominees

Democratic Sen. Al Franken's grilling of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch in the so-dubbed "frozen trucker" case may have been the most replayed moment of the televised Senate Judiciary Committee hearings last March.
It has drawn hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, and Gorsuch, a sitting judge since April, sarcastically recalled the controversy months later as an episode that made it look like "I just hate truckers."
Franken's bitter resignation speech on Thursday because of sexual harassment allegations leaves more than an open seat on the Senate Judiciary Committee when Democrats already have few tools to fight Republican President Donald Trump's lifetime-appointments to the federal bench.

Looks to me the RATs are losing their top Groper. #1, in fact.
When Republicans don’t fight you get Senator Franken. Eating for them to screw up don’t make it.
Idiot Sessions let that moron Franken get the better of him, hence he reclused himself. Both Sessions and Franken need to go.
that’s waiting for them to screw up
Put Patty Murray on the Judiciary Committee. That will raise the collective IQ a tad.
I believe Franken will go back to using his old title...Baggage Handler #2.
Neil Gorsuch got confirmed & is sitting on the bench, so the “top fighter” lost.
He ain’t gone till he’s gone. Conyers is not gone either, he has another year to get his second wind. I just refuse to believe anything they have to say.
Franken’s not gone till he’s gone. He might change his mind “for the good of the Country.”
franken is quite funny now.
Has he been in office long enough to qualify for all the retirement benefits bestowed by Uncle Sam?
What was that little dork supposed to know about the judiciary? He was elected through vote fraud, he should have stayed clear.
Democrats need not worry. He is still going to be voting now and for the commmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmming weeks.
He got Sessions to recuse himself. Thats YOUGE!!

How are the royalties for that book coming, Al? (Author of “Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them.”)
I think I’ll just do a Youtube action video called “Regular old guy chokes the everloving s**t out of a complete a**hole. That’s a big bag to empty, but I’m willing.
That wasn’t a resignation speech.
He denied guilt and said he would resign in the future. He mentioned weeks. Maybe 104 weeks, who knows, he didn’t say. When Moore wins next Tuesday, Franken may “extend” those “weeks”.
