The Democrats made good on their promise to filibuster the nomination of SCOTUS nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Chris Coons, a Democrat Senator from Delaware made #41 just moments ago. The Democrats needed a total of 40 votes to ensure a filibuster.
This is a purely political move by the Democrats. Justice Gorsuch has demonstrated that he is more than qualified and has even stated he wouldn’t stand with President Trump’s agenda in some cases.
Many Democrat Senators took their marching orders from Minority Leader Chuck Schumer today and stated their intention to vote no for Gorsuch:
As we stated above, Chris Coons was the clincher:
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already stated that the filibuster won’t stop the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. This signals his intention to change the Senate rules, as the democrats did, to confirm nominees to the bench.
Watch the liberal media freak out when McConnell makes the change.
