BREAKING NEWS: Neil Gorsuch Has Been CONFIRMED to US Supreme Court

After Democrats blocked the vote on Gorsuch’s nomination, through a filibuster, the Republicans triggered the nuclear option and changed Senate rules.

This allowed the stage to be set for Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Now, the Senate has just confirmed President Trump’s nominee Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. This seat used to be occupied by Antonin Scalia, a strong conservative justice.

The triggering of the nuclear option yesterday will forever change the Senate rules for filibusters of future Supreme Court nominees.
