We need proof of life on RBG - she didn’t show up at the State of the Union address so Trump can appoint her replacement.

Brasher is a good one...young and a potential future Supreme Court nominee. The leftist, globalist DemocRATS hate him.

This is the real reason the Rats wanted witnesses. They wanted to keep the Senate tied up with this BS for months, so they couldn’t do the work of the American people. Way to go, Mitch!

Say what you will about Mitch and I know there are COUNTLESS Freepes who hate the guy. But someone of these haters explain how those 150 + fed judges were confirmed by Trump talking and convincing the GOP senate (especially the RINOS) alone...

Anyone? Bueller?

It was Mitch..

As Rush said multiple times. The sole reason was not because of the Dems hatred for Trump for removing him but HOW FAST the judge confirmations are going..even surpassing Dubya and Obama’s pace.

Last I looked there were 79 vacancies. Congress will really have their work cut out to approve them all by November.

she has already said as much. I would not be surprised if the House issued Impeachment Articles (for the same offenses) against Trump. The only difference will be in the precise wording of the Impeachment Articles.

Which from here on out will be seen as the harassment it is, and will be dismissed with a pro forma vote the minute it hits the Senate.
