Grassley Wants To Pull Out All The Stops To Confirm Trump’s Judges

Good man, Senator G. Focus on and doing his job. Iowa’s finest. Ongoing problem shows Dems in unusually bad light.

Very, very bad, that is, as opposed to very bad.

Senate Democrats have aggressively leveraged procedural mechanisms to slow the pace of confirmations, forcing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to limit the amount of Senate time expended on judgeships. Judiciary committee Democrats regularly exercise their prerogative to delay consideration of nominees by one week, while Democratic leadership has forced time-consuming cloture votes on many circuit court nominees, even those confirmed with bipartisan support.

For instance:

In one instance, Democrats forced cloture on the nomination of Donald Coggins Jr. to the federal trial court in South Carolina. Coggins was originally nominated to the post by former President Barack Obama. He was confirmed on a 96–0 vote.

I revise my very, very bad. Make it very, very, very bad.
