    There’s time to get a nominee through the process.

    But the wishy washy pseudo-Dem RINO Senators will never vote for it.

    My guess is that he MAY make a nomination, but the system will not hold any hearings until after the election. Assuming a Trump win and Republicans maintain majority in Senate, then it will go forward. If Trump loses, nominee is thrown into the trash can and the dissolution of the United States will begin.

    What is the point of bifurcating the discussion when there's already a thread about Ginsburg?

    Interesting. We'll see if it happens. We can only hope.

    Don't confuse the issues.

    Issue 1. DJT needs to make the nomination. He MUST. It is his duty.

    Issue 2. Senate needs to decide what to do with the nomination.

    Toss the ball to the Senate and let them work it out.

    There are 6 RINO Senators who have previously pledged not to vote to approve a justice in 2020.

    Grassley
    Graham
    Murkowski
    Collins
    Romney
    Gartner

    I don’t see how Trump gets his pick through the Senate.

    Trump and the senate will get one appointed and passed either before or after he Trump is re-elected. That’s absolutely undebatable!!!

    Maybe republican voters send these senators back home if they oppose the will of their party? That would be some kind of consolation prize just for playing. At least, one can hope.

    There will be a vote win or lose and the American people will see who turns down a qualified justice.

    Those Senators will have to face the voters sooner or later so that is their problem.

    Knowing President Trump it will be a qualified candidate with impeccable credentials.

    Notice Biden has not produced a list of potential candidates like Trump has. Is Biden ashamed of who he might pick? Liberals always hide their true intentions.

    Won’t work in this crazy election cycle. Trump can nominate but it’s not going to happen until after the election providing that he wins re-election. When you have that many GOP senators already bailing before RBG is in the ground DJT may as well concentrate on getting re-elected. I think that he will nominate someone with the expectation that it isn’t going anywhere in the Senate.

    Trump is the President until January 20th. That's 4 months. They should get it done within that 4 months, no matter what the election results are.
