Democrats will filibuster Judge Neil Gorsuch, the most neutral nominee Republicans would ever put up for the Supreme Court. The Democrats want a deal. Democrats have no intention of every compromising on a single thing. They want Trump gone. These are the same people who demonized Republicans for so-called obstruction.
Sandra Smith, a host on Outnumbered said Thursday, “The deal Democrats would be most likely pursue would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a commitment from Republicans not to kill the filibuster for a subsequent vacancy during Donald Trump’s term. The next high court opening could alter the balance of the court, and some Democrats privately argue that fight will be far more consequential than the current one.” Could that happen?”
Guest Pete Hegseth responded.
“That is exactly right. I think the knee-jerk partisan reaction from Senate Democrats on this is so unwise. This is a one for one replacement. You lost a conservative and you’re getting a conservative. The next fight will likely be the balance of the court. If I’m a Senate Democrat, I’m keeping my powder dry on this one, look stately for one time which they can’t manage to do under Trump presidency. No, they can’t. They are so rabid, they have to oppose everything. Show some patience one, then live to fight another day. That would be the smart position. I just don’t know if they can do it.”
If Republicans agreed to this deal when they have all the power, they’d all be fired.
