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
