With the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh still at the top of the Senate calendar, senators are still deliberating on a number of controversial nominees, including one that could face significant delays.
Senators have been discussing the appointment of Robert Bork, who was nominated to fill the vacancy created by the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Bork was a longtime conservative, and he had been a strong supporter of Donald Trump’s campaign for president.
In 2006, he introduced legislation that would have allowed the government to deny healthcare to undocumented immigrants, but it died in the Senate.
Borks nomination was also controversial for other reasons.
He opposed a Supreme Court nominee from Massachusetts named Neil Gorsuch, who the court ultimately confirmed in February.
And in 2006, Bork voted in favor of the nomination of then-Vice President Dick Cheney to a federal judgeship in Oklahoma.
But Bork has emerged as a popular nominee for Senate confirmation in recent years, with some Senate Republicans considering him a more palatable alternative to Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Judicial Court nominee.
Boruto: Trump ‘doesn’t know who he is’ Boruto: Kavanaugh’s critics should not be intimidated in the 2018 elections Boruto questions Kavanaugh accuser’s mental health Boruto calls Kavanaugh accuser ‘an animal’ after she accuses him of sexual assaultBorutos most recent comments on the Kavanaugh hearing came on Sunday, when he said that his critics should be “very careful” in the next election.
“I think that they are in a very tough spot.
They’re not in a position to go out and attack somebody.
They’ve never had a chance,” Boruto said.
“If they were going to attack someone, they’d have a chance to be the nominee, they would have a shot, and the other guy would be sitting there in a box.
But they are not in that box, they are trying to do their job.”
In the interview, Boruto also discussed the possibility of a Supreme Judicial Conference, the body that has the power to confirm the highest court on the nation.
He said that if he was confirmed, he would “be able to make the case to a majority of senators” that the Supreme court is “a place where justice should be heard and where it should be respected.”
Borito said that it was important that the court was open and transparent to all, including the public.
“The whole purpose of our Constitution is that we have this Supreme Court where we should have the most open and accountable court in the world, so I would be very interested to hear from you, the American people, if you think that that’s the case,” he said.BORUTO: I don’t know what it means to be ‘anti-Trump’ Borutos comments come as Democrats are weighing whether to nominate Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice.
Democrats have signaled they want to make sure that Kavanaugh is not nominated, given that he is one of the most outspoken Trump supporters.
Democrats are concerned that Republicans will nominate Brett to the court in a manner that would deny him due process rights, and that could result in him being blocked from even getting a hearing on his nomination.
Bors remarks came as Democrats were considering the potential of a new Senate Democratic majority, and they are considering a number high-profile judicial nominees.
Boras nomination would likely be one of them, as he is also considered the most prominent Trump supporter in the country.
He has a history of supporting the president and supporting him politically, and this week he was a strong voice on behalf of President Trump during his confirmation hearings for his nomination to be a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday, September 18, for the nomination.
