    Thumbs down Romney backs pre-election Supreme Court vote, paving way for McConnell, Trump

    COV19 Satanic tag team = Donnell & Mitt.

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) signaled on Tuesday that he is open to confirming a Supreme Court nominee from President Trump this year.

    “The Constitution gives the President the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees. Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the President’s nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications," Romney said in a statement.

    Romney's decision is a blow to Senate Democrats and a boon to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), with both sides watching him closely as a potential swing vote on bringing up whomever Trump nominates to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat just weeks before a presidential election.

    McConnell has essentially locked down support within his 53-member caucus to move a Supreme Court nominee this year, laying the groundwork for an explosive fight that critics warn could lead to an overhaul of the Senate. McConnell has not said if he will try to move a nomination before or after the election.

    Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), McConnell's No. 2, said on Tuesday after Romney's announcement that he personally supports moving Trump's nominee before the election, but the decision on timing will need to be discussed with the caucus during a closed-door lunch later Tuesday.

    President Donnell and his shortlist are going to need much more time to familiarize themselves with the US Constitution.

    For instance, Senator Rafael Eduardo Cruz(R) is an illegal alien invader from Canada.

    Romney will change his tune as soon as he realizes that swamp judge Amy Coney Barrett isn't Trump's nominee.

    Nay, you are badly mistaken. Only bipartisan cooperation between both wings of the D&R party, could have gotten the USA into it's present sorry state.

    We need some pro-American SCOTUS justices like Justin Amash(I).

    The leftarians are in mourning for Darth Bader Ginsberg and fantasize getting another commie to replace her if they wield the weapon of purity testing hard enough.
    They want a communist country to hate, they are addicted to hate and their primary hatred is for conservatives because they hate rules and wish that "do as thou wilt" were the whole law.

    That's not what I was talking about at all. Nice shift, Shiffty.

    Do YOU agree that it is purpose of the POTUS and the Senate to confirm a SCOTUS when there is a vacancy?

    Except when they're pushing federal statutes designating what content a social media outlet has to remove in order to not be sued or banning bump stocks and supporting red flag laws. Other than little things like that, sure.

    Trump should nominate Judge Nap. But he won't. It'll be some Catholic who's married to a Jew. SSDD

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.
