Vote On Supreme Court Nominee Gorsuch Expected This Week
The Senate this week is expected to vote on the nomination of President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch.
Many Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, are saying they will filibuster. Republicans are saying that if they do, they will trigger the nuclear option, and unilaterally change the rules to allow Gorsuch to be confirmed with a simple 51-vote majority.
Here & Now‘s Robin Young talks with Emily Bazelon (@emilybazelon), staff writer at the New York Times Magazine and a fellow at Yale Law School, about where things stand on Gorsuch’s confirmation.
