Trump Judges Congress

President Donald Trump made many promises on the campaign trail leading up to his election last November but one promise may have proved more important than all the others; his promise to nominate a conservative judge to replace the late Antonin Scalia. Trump kept his promise by nominating Neil Gorsuch a strict constructionist. Confirmation hearings for Gorsuch are just about ready to get started and it looks as if the hardcore opposition is fading away.

Democrats led by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had promised to fight any nomination tooth and nail but that resistance has seemed to crumble. Senators like Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota are already showing signs they may give in to the Republican nominee. If the blue wall erodes it would eliminate the need to invoke the so-called ‘nuclear option’ that would rid the process of the filibuster.

Gorsuch getting confirmed would go a long way to securing Donald Trumps place in history. Gorsuch could be on the court for the next 30 years or more. No matter what happens during the rest of the Trump Presidency, securing places on the Supreme Court could secure his legacy on the Supreme Court.
