Team Clinton: Gorsuch filibuster payback for loss

Written by  Paul Bedard

Key Democrats and progressives have been joined by a top Hillary Clinton lieutenant in their effort to block the Supreme Court nomination of Neil Gorsuch because they question the legitimacy of President Trump's election.

Pushing a theory that Trump's election was improperly bolstered by Russia, former Clinton-era Labor Secretary Robert Reich said for MoveOn.org, "until we know he is a legitimate president, Trump can't be presumed to have the authority to make such a pick."

And on Sunday, Hillary Clinton's campaign communications director said a filibuster is the only course of action for Democrats until the investigation into Russia's 2016 efforts is done.

"If Clinton had won with the help of the Russians, the Republicans would have impeachment proceedings underway for treason," Jennifer Palmieri wrote in the Washington Post.

She added: "Don't let business continue on Capitol Hill without insisting at every opportunity that our nation should resolve the Russia matter. Filibustering Neil Gorsuch is a good start. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer is right that it would be 'unseemly' to move forward with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court by a president whose campaign is under an active FBI investigation."

Their voices are part of a growing Democratic chorus to use the Gorsuch nomination to draw more attention to the Russia affair and turn it into a scandal.

Do the progressives really want to push the nuclear option on this appointment? As usual they are not looking to far into the future with the possibility of several more SCOTUS seats opening up during this administration. Gorsuch is not the judge to base this fight on. He is eminently qualified for this position. Just as when harry weed did the nuclear option, pushing McConnell into it now will come back to bite the dems in the ass.

I hope all of this BS (Russia,Filibuster, investigations, etc.) with the Demorats isn't being paid for with our tax money. They'd better be paying for on their own dime. If it is better let your state Demorat congressman that it isn't going to be tolerated. This has dragged on long enough, time to move on and start doing what they were elected for. Or we will drain the swamp with or without Trump.

Total BS on the part of Clinton, Schumer and the Democrats. We just better hope McConnell had been fertizing his crotch the past few weeks. He's gonna need a pair swinging to act like Harry Reid and change the rules.

What a bunch of morons... He needs to be put in to fill the vacancy. Those opposed to the constitution are opposed to the USA. They probably have moronic statements against him and lies. Why don't they just shut up and vote him in. He will be in eventually.

This is a Piece of SH*T Video. Most of this has came out and Trump is not doing anything to make him not the President of the United States of America. I think you need to take this down. Please do so now.

You are a loser! period.

it is time to hold all democrats accountable, they keep their lies going, time to show their past criminal actions, which shows their bias attitudes; and their obstructionist agenda Their past destruction of this country and their continued destruction and lies. They strut with their holier than thou bull, when they are the biggest crime syndicate in the world. They make up lies and then try to hold the opposition to their lies, how idiotic stupid can you get. They are the epitome of stupid and the best definition of the word. I and people like me get tired of their crybaby criminal elite antics.

hard to find someone with the time, yet i think they are slowly sinking their own ship with the crap, people are seeing them and their violent rioting supporters for what they are.

Filibuster? Ok, force McConnell to impose the "Nuclear Option". Then, only 51 votes will be required. He will be confirmed. Period. But, what Democratic voters don't know (or want to know), is once the Option is invoked, all Supreme Court nominees after that will only require 51 votes. So, think about that fact, when Ginsberg kicks off shortly.

McConnell has been spineless to this point! We'll soon see if he develops one!

LOL..The Irony..Obama is undocumented with a phony SS# and birth certificate and they're claiming Trump is not legit. The Harry Reid rules says you only need 51 votes now so what's the holdup?

Rich coming from a party that thought a murderer, treasoner and liar was suitable for President and those who aren't Democrats!! Luckily 100M people saw Killary for what she was an unlikeable manipulator and corrupt political hack! What Palmiere, Podesta, Democrats, Libertards and Snowflakes can't ACCEPT is that Obozo and Killary herself are responsible for the Presidential loss and destruction of this country!! Need an investigation, start with your own party and how it screwed Sanders out of the nomination and take some real action firing all Democrat leadership!!

Democrats and RINOS are acting like out of control CHILDREN & are forgetting that millions of Americans voted for President Trump because we WANT his agenda. Democrats are showing that they think America is only about party and not about WE THE PEOPLE.. newsflash : we didn't vote for republicans as they also failed us with their weakness, we voted for TRUMP
