This would give President Trump another yoooge appointment and hopefully swing the Court even further to the right.
"I would expect a resignation this summer," said Grassley (R-IA) who is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He said there was a "rumored" retirement in the offing but didn't say who the justice was.
Could it be Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the 84-year-old liberal justice who falls asleep in the middle of dinner?
Let's hope so, or even better, let's hope it's Stephen Breyer who is 78-years-old. If Breyer goes, Ginsburg may soon thereafter follow, and both justices are uber liberal.
Even Ted Cruz (R-TX) believes that there will be changes in the highest court in the land. "I think we'll have another Supreme Court vacancy this summer," he said. "If that happens, as much as the left is crazy now, they will go full Armageddon meltdown."
Grassley believes that a new Supreme Court nominee would come from the list he produced as a candidate, the same list Gorsuch was on.
And now that Sen. Harry Reid (D-AZ) put the "nuclear option" on the table, President Trump is likely to get whoever he nominates. (Thank you Harry.)
Under the 'nuclear option,' only 51 votes are needed for approval--a simple majority--and Republicans now have 52 seats in the Senate.
