McConnell guarantees Gorsuch will be confirmed on April 7

Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed to the Supreme Court on April 7, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell guaranteed on Tuesday.

“He’ll be on the floor of the Senate next week and confirmed on Friday,” McConnell told reporters. “We are optimistic that [Democrats] will not be successful in keeping this good man from joining the Supreme Court real soon.”

The cagey Senate majority leader refused to say that he would do it via the “nuclear option” — a unilateral change in rules to kill the Senate’s 60-vote threshold on Supreme Court nominees. But McConnell also declined to rule out whipping 50 of his 52 members to change the rules if Democrats deny Gorsuch the required 60 votes to end a filibuster.

I have  no idea why reps would be afraid to require just  51 votes to confirm a supreme court judge. I hope they do it. They are probably afraid dems will use it when they are in power but to be honest reps approve dem judges anyway so changing the rule wont even matter  in the long run.

As I see it, McConnell has no choice but to invoke the "nuclear option" if Schumer and the democrats attempt filibuster this appointment. To not do it would only give Schumer full control Trump's SCOTUS appointments. The question is will all the RINO's in the senate support McConnell?

That's the same question I have.  If this confirmation doesn't go through, this presidency is done and we will lose our majority.  Time to start calling our Senators and holding their feet to the fire!

I have already written to both my RINO senators.

To throw a curve ball to Trump.  Why wouldn't the DEMS who voted in favor of Gorsuch before not vote in favor of him now?  The RINO's seem to be circling the wagon.

I have absolutely -0- faith in McConnell on this.  I've written my two RINO Senators ... we'll see what happens.

IMO....If Chucky Doll Schumer filibusters Gorsuch appointment to the SCOTUS then Chucky Doll wants the nuke option to take place in hopes that President Trump is a one term president. He will be putting all his eggs in this one basket that the democrats take the presidency and that no other SCOTUS retires or falls victim to illness before these happens.

That is certainly a possibility, but it is taking a long shot. I would not be surprised if Kennedy announces his retirement after Gorsuch is confirmed.

It was the Dims that changed the ruling, so regardless of whether the GOP uses it, or takes it off the table, the Dims will change it to fit their needs, so I'm not really seeing the logic of this argument, and it's not you, I've seen it in the media and they failed to make a case for it.
Like I said, it's all smoke and mirrors. Gorsuch will be confirmed regardless because both Establishments in both parties want him.

IMO, I think is going to be a one term president. I honestly believe that he will chose to not run for reelection regardless of what takes place over the course of the next few years.

If Trump gets 60% of what he wants the Republicans are in a very good position if Trump decides not to run for re-election.
