It's remarkable in terms of what the president has been able to do, thanks in large part to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, hey has paved the way for filling the federal Judiciary with Republican conservative judges that even if President Trump was not the president, let's just say, for instance, a different Republican. Had won the nomination and then been elected president like a Marco Rubio or a Ted Cruz. You're still looking at the same type of conservative judges that would have been chosen by them. For the federal bench. But President Trump has followed through with this pledge to name conservatives to the federal judiciary. And these are judges that have lifetime appointment.

"High Canada this morning in the Washington Post. My right. Voters who do not want to be ruled by unelected judges want President Trump to nominate and the Republican Senate to confirm the next Supreme Court justice. If Democrats deploy outrageous delaying tactics, such as conducting a sham impeachment, speaker Nancy Pelosi replied simply, We have our options when asked about that possibility by ABC, George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, a sham impeachment The Republican Senate majority should simply dispense with hearings and hold about History favors President's failing such lots when their party controls the Senate. The Democrats are upset. Trump gets to make another appointment with the court doesn't change history or amend the Constitution. Charge that Trump Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Lindsey Graham was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee are acting with extreme ruthlessness and hypocrisy, given their decision not to consider a Democrat president's nominee in advance of the 2016 election. Is particularly amusing. Democrats know how to use power when they have it, too. Then majority leader Harry Raids simply change the Senate rules in 2013 when he wanted to jam President Barack Obama's nominees onto the DC circuit. Cries of fear over a rapidly spreading fire. Don't count for much when it's the arson it doing the screaming. On Saturday on MSNBC's politics nations former attorney general Eric Holder called on Democrats to add seats of the Supreme Court. Which has been fixed at nine since 18 69 if this one seat is filled by Trump in the Senate, GOP Court packing. That's what it's known, as would be a fundamental assault on the stability of the Republic, the sort of radical proposal that should make independent moderate voters step back shake their heads at what Trump Derangement syndrome has done to the Democratic Party. It is not the only radical proposal being pursued by many Democrats. The green New deal is an unhinged mess of slogans creating states from the District of Columbia in Puerto Rico to add senators would be extreme steps on their own, as is the push for a national popular vote Interstate compact to overturn the electoral college. Of course, Democrats would have to end the Senate's legislative filibuster to do these things, but that's on the radical agenda, too. None of these compare with packing. The Supreme Court, however, which has only been proposed by a president once thanked on Roosevelt in 1937, and his own party recoiled from it. No person is safe from the law when the law becomes elastic as a packed court. Raise the number of justices to say 15 by adding six liberals. When the GOP returns of power would add another gaggle, and eventually, the court would reach into the dozens. A seesaw rocking of the country's politics will only grow more violent yet Beltway Democrats are so hungry for power they're rushing to embrace this poison pill for the republic. So the re Alexe tree mists have d behind their names, and many of them held all these views before Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died. The attempt to apply the label of hypocrite and hide. The fact that Democrats are pushing an extremist agenda is abetted by blue Check Twitter addicts and mainstream media. Those suffering from TGS have rallied to their latest anti conservative cause of denying Trump his third justice.

Get out rally Florida to Trump column Like Larson, she would win any televised battle with the Judiciary Committee's left wing. But the point is all five are qualified. The Constitution gives the president the power to nominate. The Republicans have the Senate majority and the history favors that majority parties use of that power.

Trump faces rebuke from government for floating election delay
"Trump's statement about delaying an American election was shot down immediately by Democrats and Republicans Senate majority. Leader Mitch McConnell in an interview in Kentucky whenever in the history of the country through wars depressions and the civil war have we ever not had federally a schedule election on time but Joe Biden has been warning for weeks, trump might try to use the pandemic to delay or de legitimize the election. It's my greatest concern. My single greatest concern. This. Presence GonNa try to steal the selection. This is a guy who said that all male imbalance are fraudulent. Voting by mail while he sits behind the desk in Oval Office, in writes his male imbalance vote in the primary the date of the presidential general election is set by Congress
Here's what we know about Trump suggesting the idea of delaying the November election
"Do. But the mere suggestion by President Trump about changing the election date is causing extreme concern. He tweeted quote, delay the election until people can properly securely and safely vote, followed by three question marks. Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dismissed the idea in an interview with W N k y 40 never in the history of the country through wars, depressions. And the Civil war, and we ever not had a federally scheduled election on time, and we'll find a way to do that again this November 3rd, we're going to talk about Republican reaction to the president's suggestion with Sarah Longwell, She's the executive director of Republicans for the rule of law. Morning, Sarah. Thanks for being back in the show. Thank you for having me. I'm going to read the president's entire tweet and then ask you about it, he says, quote with Universal mail in voting parentheses, not absentee voting, which is good. 2020 will be the most inaccurate and fraudulent election in history on then he goes on to suggest that delay that we talked about you have said everything in his tweet is a lie. Walk us through that. Well, first of all, like you, said Trump cannot change the date of the election. The date of the election is constitutionally mandated and ultimately under the purview of Congress. But the you know the bigger issue is is honestly the vote by mail on the fraud. I mean, I really think there's two things going on here in terms of why, Trump said this tweet. The first is that the president is trying to change the subject away from Yesterday's historically bad GDP numbers, which came out, you know, just shortly, and coincidentally before his tweet on, there are plenty of other stories that he wants to distract from the moment whether it's the Russian bounties or his bad polling, etcetera, the president always had kind of Ah, low cunning. When it comes to understanding how to control narratives, So this looks like a classic case of calculated misdirection. But the bigger goal I think is about generally sowing distrust in the outcome of the election and laying the potential groundwork toe either dispute the results or claim it was rigged. So that he could be perpetually aggrieved. If he loses. We saw the president do this in 2016 on do you know he really only has a few plays in his playbook, and he tends to run them over and over again. But I think that it's you know, everybody sort of reacted to the idea that Hay was talking about delaying the election. But I think what's most concerning is just this general tryingto undermine confidence in the upcoming election because that is that's scary at a time when the election is going to look different to people because we're in the midst of a pandemic because there'd be so many mail in ballots. Well, let me ask you about Republican response. When we played that McConnell clip. We also heard Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas say, Hey, this is just the president troll in the press. But yesterday, the co founder of the Federalist Society, Steven Calabresi, wrote this op ed in The New York Times, saying that this is grounds for immediate impeachment and Calabresi as someone who has supported Trump a lot in the past. Yeah, you know, While there were no profiles in courage from the Senate Republicans who should have issued clear, thorough repudiation Sze of his comment. The one real bright spot was that the founder of the Federalist Society came out and just in no uncertain terms condemned this called it Fascist, said that the president It would be warranted for him to be impeached again. That is strong language, and I think that sends a really strong message to the conservative legal community that nobody should be defending this kind of behavior and that the highest levels of sort of conservative Legal ethics would not agree with anybody defending this.
Trump threatens to delay election
"Unprecedented unprecedented step step Thursday Thursday toward toward calling calling the the November November election election into into question question suggesting suggesting in in a a tweet tweet that that the the election election shouldn't shouldn't happen. happen. In November should be delayed to some future date. It's a move never seen in America before, but a tool dictators and other countries have often relied on to hold onto their power. Last night, the president repeated his warning the mail in ballots will, in his words, rig the presidential election. More from correspondent and he feels the president pointed toe isolated mail in ballot problems and claiming all mail in voting is rigged. Despite the fact he and his family and much of the staff had voted absentee by mail for years. We all agree That absentee voting. It's good mail in ballots will lead to the greatest fraud but mail in ballots. States say the voting is no different from absentee and only registered voters can cast that ballot. Presidents don't suppose upon the election would be unconstitutional as Congress sets the election's not the president and leaders from both parties made it clear they have no intention to delay the vote. And Mr Trump Suggestion more from correspondent Terry Moran. Trump's statement about delaying an American election was shot down immediately by Democrats and Republicans. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in an interview in Kentucky. Never in the history of the country through wars, depressions and the civil war and we ever not had a federally scheduled election on time. But Joe Biden has been warning for weeks, Trump might try to use the pandemic to delay or delegitimize the election. Mayor de Blasio called the president's move. An act of a timer. I think a lot of people even some people had supported President Trump. I gotta look at that and say no. That is that is abnegation responsibly. But more importantly, that's an assault on our democracy and cannot stand when the president may not be successful in delaying the election, his actions were seen as a way to further delegitimize the results. In the eyes of his supporters, which should he lose could further inflame the walls of political division.
