Thread: Senate Republicans Shut Down ATF Nominee

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Senate Republicans Shut Down ATF Nominee

    Chuck Canterbury, President Trump's nominee to serve as head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, is likely to see his nomination withdrawn due to stringent opposition from Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Washington Free Beacon learned on Thursday.
    "Chuck Canterbury does NOT have sufficient support in the Judiciary Committee and is now expected to be held up instead of getting a vote today," a GOP Senate aide told the Free Beacon on Thursday morning. "Republican members are (1) Concerned about his stances on gun control, and (2) there is still some bad blood for him flipping the Fraternal Order of Police in support of the First Step Act (after opposing the more moderate version), allegedly in exchange for the ATF Director nomination."
    "His 2A views are bad and he'd lose a lot of votes in committee," a second Senate source told the Free Beacon. "We expect the White House will pull him given lack of support from Republicans on the Judiciary Committee."

    Lol, it's pretty bad when even the republican Senators balk. They're notoriously of a liberal bent as a group.

    This will not go over well with Trump supporters. Hopefully it doesn't cost any of the ones who contravened him their reelections.

    with an impeachment process going into overdrive, Mr.Donald John Trump is soon to become a most political lame duck.

    when the U.S House of REPs in 1868 did the vote that created the Senate Trial, in the first half of that year,
    ANDREW JOHNSON had a difficult time getting HIS people into the open positions they all easily were most
    competent enuff to adequately fill. both Nixon and A.Johnson had a "lame duck" phase to their presidencies.

    Admittedly the abrupt FIRING of SEC' of WAR Edwin Stanton had created a job position that seemed easy for POTUS A.J to fill....

    Gen'l U.S GRANT was offered Edwin Stanton's old job by the sitting president.
    (Seriously. had General Grant accepted, history might have gone differently!)

    i agree. he'd be a great president! i think Rand H Paul has been too loyal to Donald J Trump. i think he is now a regional favorite son.
