One way to call the Democrat’s bluff is to nominate someone they have previously supported for a position in the Trump administration and that is exactly what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) may be trying to do. Last year, Barack Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, but McConnell managed to block the confirmation of Garland. Now, McConnell is supporting Garland to be the next Director of the FBI.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is behind the idea of Judge Merrick Garland, whose Supreme Court nomination McConnell squashed, becoming the next FBI director, a former adviser to the Kentucky senator said Sunday.
“I think the senate majority leader thinks that’s a fantastic idea,” former adviser Josh Holmes, who now runs the strategy firm Cavalry LLC, told “Fox News Sunday.” “He certainly thinks (Garland) will be qualified. And (McConnell) certainly thinks he would be somebody that he could support.”
Garland was former President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in 2016…
If President Trump would nominate Garland to replace Comey as FBI Director, Democrats, including Chuck Schumer would have no plausible reason to block Garland’s confirmation or to vote against him. If he does, then it would prove that he not interested in doing what’s best for the nation, but only what he feels is best for Chuck Schumer for the sole purpose of puffing himself up in the eyes of the people.
