Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, there is the matter of Senate Committee rules. These were adopted for the duration of the session at the start of this Congress. The rules for the Senate Judiciary Committee state that for a Supreme Court nominee to advance to the floor two minority senators must vote for it. If the above is true, then McConnell violated his own rules. Except for pure power politics I do not see how that should fly. Unless I am missing something then the confirmation really is illegitimate.
