Stephen tracks Trump’s progress in filling the Supreme Court vacancy, the only Trump-appointed position that hasn’t been given to Jared Kushner.
The senate democrats now have 41 votes to filibuster Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Democrats who believe that Merrick Garland should already be apart of the Supreme court, are set to make the republicans use the “Nuclear Option.”

Tell us what you think about the republicans changing the way congress works by using the Nuclear option.
