Democrat Leaders Have Some Bad News For Desperate Dems About Blocking Kavanaugh


ㅤ"The reality, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters this week, is that if all the Republicans vote to affirm him, as seems increasingly likely, there’s simply not much Democrats can do about it, The Hill reports. All those folks desperately calling for their political leaders to do something, Sen. Dick Durbin suggested, don’t understand how the Senate operates.
ㅤ’There is no way we can prevent the Senate from meeting,’ Schumer said in response to a question about procedural methods for blocking the confirmation hearing. ‘There’s been some discussion about that, but it just wouldn’t happen.’
ㅤDurbin was more blunt. ‘Some of the things that have been in blogs and suggested do not even understand the basics of the Senate,’ the second-ranking Democratic Senator told reporters. ‘Some of the people who have come up to me at parades and said, ‘Shut ’em down, do this, do that,’ it reflects a limited understanding of how the Senate operates.’
ㅤWith Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins signaling that they’re likely to support Kavanaugh, the Democrats’ hopes of blocking Trump’s second Supreme Court nomination are looking grim.’"ㅤ

ㅤ”Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin said Thursday that he does not expect Democrats will insist on attaching immigration reform to the fiscal year 2018 spending omnibus, lowering the odds of another government shutdown.
ㅤDurbin said Congress is looking forward to finally passing the spending package, which comes nearly six months into the fiscal year, after weeks of acrimonious disagreement over spending levels, immigration, and a variety of conservative policy riders.”

Lindsey Graham Crosses the Line — Gets Himself Booted From White House Immigration Discussions

Pictured: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)

ㅤ”A GOP aide told the Examiner that allowing Graham to take part in immigration discussions could ruin the chances of any deal being reached on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
ㅤ’Anything that Graham is a leader on is, honestly, dead on arrival in terms of the White House and also in the House,’ the aide told the publication. ‘The problem right now, even more than policies, is the personalities, the people who want to spearhead their sides of the aisle. I don’t think Graham carries weight in the GOP conference.’
ㅤStaffers within the White House also said Durbin would be difficult to work with on the issue.
ㅤ’I respect Durbin and the rest of them, but their version of solving this problem is not the President’s version of solving this problem,’ a senior White House aide said. ‘What Sen. Graham, Sen. Durbin, Sen. Flake, those kinds of people are doing relative to a DACA bill is just not where [Trump] is, and not where the Senate and the House is.'”

ㅤô¿ô …I say it’s about time.
