Democrats to Filibuster US Supreme Court Nominee

In a report by Associated Press today, US Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) spoke to the Senate and said, “I have concluded that I cannot support Neil Gorsuch’s nomination. My vote will be no and I urge my colleagues to do the same.” The AP also reported Senator Schumer stated that the Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch “almost instinctively favors the powerful over the weak”. It is not understood from the report how Senator Schumer arrived at that conclusion. The AP report went on to state that Democrats are still furious that Republicans blocked former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland from the post last year.
