    Crikey I hope so. If the Dems in the House go for impeachment again, will that force the confirmation to the back burner?

    Something something about counting chickens.

    Personally I think it's the best thing that could happen though. Not only do we get another justice, but the fact is Americans like winners, not whiners. Stomp the opponent when you have the opportunity, and you get fans.

    Senate confirms. Who cares what the House does.

    Shouldn't be an issue.

    If they stay in DC for impeachment, that means they're not campaigning to be reelected, that means we've got better chance to take the House back.

    So. I'd say, "Go impeach, be my guest."
    Now, you understand the brilliance of Nance Pelosi.

    This is, possibly, the reason Trump released his list of 20 before the vacancy was actually open. Because he did that, I can live with the idea that “we have the votes to confirm” before the nomination has even been made. This way the Senators can say “we’ve looked at the list and would confirm anyone on it.” Otherwise, it would reek of partisan bull**** and seem like “we’re gonna vote for anyone he puts up just to toe the party line.”

    Watching the Dems tear apart a female Trump nominee, will be like rubber necking a road side slaughter. You don't want to look, but you can't look away.

    I don't understand how an action by the House could interfere with a senate confirmation. Please explain.

    Yep. The senate does not work for pelosi. She can send over articles of impeachment (though there is nothing to impeach him for) and Mitch can basically tell her to FO. I seriously doubt that this close to election that pelosi could even get the votes in the house for impeachment. This is why the "separation of powers".

    At this point, about the only thing the impotent communist Democrat losers in the House can do is announce they are beginning impeachment proceedings against V.P. Pence alleging collusion during the nomination process.

    Then they demand and shriek that Pence recuse himself from being the tie-breaking Senate confirmation vote while they drag out their investigation for a month or two. The DNC media plays along.

    They can demand anything they want. Pence won't recuse himself.

    It cannot. This is a rumor someone started in another thread. It probably came from the DU. The House can impeach again if they want. Nothing will stop the Senate except the Senate.

    I just sent a 5 dollar donation each to both Graham and McConnell who I've always despised for being RINO's but they are doing a good job with this Supreme court Nomination.

    I'm retired on fixed income and that's all I can afford in addition to money I've sent to Trump who is not perfect and who I didn't like at first but now he's all that stands between us and a radical corrupt collectivist totalitarian government takeover of the country that so many of us love.

    Trump knew, as we all did, but perhaps with more details than us,
    that she had more problems than just checking in and out of hospital.

    It was part of something I was listening to on the radio this afternoon but didn't get to sit through the whole thing. It was my understanding that the Senate controlled the confirmation process.

    I wasn't sure how or if another BS impeachment process would cause issues. Hence my asking rather than making a statement that it would.

    Then by all means, let's get it on! It's almost Tuesday already! This is too important for this country to mess around with it. It's time for Mitch to act Ruthlessly.
