I'll make it simple, @chuckschumer: shut the Senate down. No unanimous consent, no nothing. A Supreme Court nomination cannot reach the floor in 2018.
We are far too close to the 2018 midterms for a nominee to be considered. In the past 50+ years, only one (Souter) has been submitted to the Senate this late in an even-numbered year.
Senate is at 50-49 with McCain's absence; it only takes one Republican to stop this, and @SenatorCollins and @lisamurkowski are not up this year. Nor is @SenJohnKennedy, who's been unafraid to stand up in Judiciary hearings. Retiring @SenBobCorker @JeffFlake could make a stand.
Plus, as @mattkbh, is is unprecedented to allow a President under criminal investigation to make a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.
This, 100%. @SenatorCollins and @lisamurkowski can decide, this summer, whether their claims to being pro-choice are substantive or nominal. Roe absolutely hangs in the balance now.
And this tweet is absolutely correct: the fate of the Court, of women's rights, of so much may depend on Sen. McCain simply not resigning and continuing his valiant fight while the nomination remains open.
WOKE BOB CASEY is on message. Boost this, friends.
