Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer has issued a warning to President-elect Trump…..Nominate a moderate mainstream for Supreme Court Justice, or else! Or else what? Schumer, being a rugged veteran of politics, plans to use every trick in the book to oppose Trump if he tries to shove an Alt-Right type down the throats of the American people.
“My worry is, with the hard right running the show, that the likelihood of the nominee being mainstream is decreasing every day,” New York Sen. Chuck Schumer said Wednesday in an interview.
Republicans should have at least heard and considered Merrick Garland. They didn’t, and then they made up lame excuses for not doing their jobs. The ‘wait for the next president’ excuse was transparent. They simply did not care.
Now if the Democrats are wise they will look at whoever is nominated and then decide. If the person is well-qualified and mostly a centrist (like Garland), he/she should be heard — confirmation is a separate thing. If the person is a flaming trumpite or alt-right type who follows the deranged leader, that person should be left to dangle in limbo for as long as possible — or until after the impeachment hearings.
