Republicans decided today to end the Democrat filibuster of Putin’s Bitch selection for the Supreme Court.
They just waltzed their way into a Constitutional crisis.
The Chumph is going to be impeached. The most likely reason is his collusion with Putin to submarine the election.
Ergo – Putin’s Bitch illegally “won” the election.
If (or when) that happens, everything done by Putin’s Bitch is illegitimate. It is the “Fruit of the Poisoned Tree”, meaning every executive order, law signed by the Chumph, or move made in terms of the Executive Branch gets reset to the day Obama left office.
Gorsuch’s nomination is illegitimate.
And that’s where things get really messy.
The issue being, how do you remove him?
The historic move paves the way for Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed.
Senate Republicans invoked the “nuclear option” to gut the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees Thursday, a historic move that paves the way for Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation and ensures that future high court nominees can advance in the Senate without clearing a 60-vote threshold.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moved to change the Senate rules after Democrats blocked Gorsuch’s nomination minutes before, 55-45. All 52 Republicans then supported the vote to go nuclear, and Gorsuch subsequently advanced to a final confirmation vote with a simple majority.
