“Trump Can Forget About Filling Supreme Court Vacancy, Sen. Schumer Says” OR Goodbye Filibuster

NBC News:

Asked by Maddow whether he, too, would seek to keep the vacant seat open rather than confirm a nominee outside the mainstream, Schumer replied: “Absolutely.”

Suggesting that could be any nominee, he said: “It’s hard for me to imagine a nominee that Donald Trump would choose that would get Republican support that we [Democrats] could support.”

There’s little doubt that if Democrats filibuster a Trump nominee who emerges from the hearings with broad Republican support, Republicans will kill the filibuster for SCOTUS nominees (as Democrats killed it for other nominees).
