Senate Dems will filibuster Trump's Supreme Court nominee

Senate Dems will filibuster Trump's Supreme Court nominee --It will be only the second time in modern history that the Senate has mounted a filibuster against a nominee. | 30 Jan 2017 | Senate Democrats are going to try to bring down President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick no matter who the president chooses to fill the current vacancy. With Trump prepared to announce his nominee on Tuesday evening, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) said in an interview on Monday morning that he will filibuster any pick that is not Merrick Garland and that the vast majority of his caucus will oppose Trump's nomination. That means Trump's nominee will need 60 votes to be confirmed by the Senate.
