Senate Republicans Go ‘Nuclear’ to Speed Trump Confirmations

WASHINGTON — Last Wednesday, all hell was let loose once again in the United States Senate.

The United States Senate’s majority party, the Republican, unilaterally decided to reduce the time between ending debate and the final confirmation vote on the choice of executive-branch members and district court judges for two hours as opposed to the regular 30 hours. This nuclear decision was taken this Wednesday for the third time in six years and was aimed at getting rid of the backlog in President Trump’s administrative and judicial nominees.

This change has provoked a long-term partisan fight as regards presidential nominations which has been on for a decade across presidential regimes from both parties.

Democrats have spent enough time debating over the disturbance which prevented Judge Merrick B. Garland from joining the Supreme Court in the last year of President Barack Obama’s regime. The question on every Democrat’s mind is why Republicans could raise complaints about President Trump’s nominees.

According to Senator Chuck Schumer (New York) who is the Democratic Leader, it is all a show of hypocrisy. On the contrary, Senator Mitch McConnell (Kentucky), claimed the Garland nomination would have pushed the Democrats to take a nuclear decision as well. He referred back to 2003 when he claimed the Republican’s started filibustering presidential nominees in a Republican regime.

Mr. McConnell’s action on Wednesday was aimed at dissolving the  Democratic delay over a lot of judicial and sub-cabinet nominations sent to the Senate by the presidency and also to appease the presidency. According to Senator John Cornyn (Texas) who is very close to Mr. McConnell, the Republicans have hoped the Democrats would strike a negotiation with them.
