After the most politically partisan and bitter Supreme Court confirmation processes in U.S. history, President Trump has prevailed and will be swearing in Judge Neil Gorsuch to the ultimate court seat on April 10.
Breitbart reports that the senate voted 54 to 45 “with Democrats Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) joining a unanimous Republican Caucus”, to approve Gorsuch. Uh oh Schumer, it looks like you failed as Senate Minority Leader.
The vote was originally expected by Friday evening of April 7 but Democrats, sensing the futility of further resistance and perhaps cherishing an early Easter break above standing on their warped principles, waived off further debate and the vote occurred just before noon.
Gorsuch will aptly replace conservative legal titan Antonin Scalia, who passed away unexpectedly in February of 2016.
Obama and Democrats tried to ramrod their nominee, activist judge Merrick Garland, through the nomination process in order to keep the vacated seat liberal. Republicans were able to prevent this, which set up the bitter fight over Gorsuch.
This is an important victory for conservative supporters of Trump, because Gorsuch, as Fox News reports, would “restore a 5-4 conservative tilt on the bench.”
The criminality and unconstitutional actions of Obama and his minions will cause many cases to appear before this court, so Gorsuch is a welcomed addition and is looked upon as someone who will hopefully provide justice.
Those screams of distress you hear are from Schumer and Nancy Pelosi realizing their agenda is doomed.
