Grassley: Another Supreme Court vacancy likely this summer

The Dem's may realize they should have confirmed Gorsuch. Mitch McConnell will go down in history as a mastermind.

Sen. Chuck Grassley is predicting that President Trump will get to nominate a second justice to the Supreme Court as early as this summer.

The Iowa Republican, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said that there is a "rumored" upcoming retirement but declined to say which justice he expects to step down.

"I would expect a resignation this summer," Grassley said during Q-and-A, according to the Muscatine Journal.

Grassley added that Trump's next Supreme Court nominee would likely come off a list of roughly two dozen names he announced before taking over the White House.

Trump could be able to make multiple nominations, allowing him to shape the direction of the court for decades. As chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Grassley would be responsible for shepherding the nomination through the Senate.

Two justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Anthony Kennedy, are in their 80s, and Justice Stephen Breyer is 78.

The administration, according to The New York Times, is already looking at potential successors if Kennedy, the court's perennial swing vote, were to retire.

Grassley isn't the first Republican to signal that he thinks a second justice will retire in the new future.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is also on the Judiciary Committee, has repeatedly predicted that he thinks Trump will get to make another nomination as soon as this summer.

"I think we're likely to see another vacancy potentially as soon as this summer. I think we'll see another vacancy either this summer or next summer," Cruz told the Chris Saucedo Show last week.

Grassley's comments come after Republicans changed the rules so they could confirm Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, to fill the vacancy created by Antonin Scalia's death.

The rule change allows future Supreme Court nominees to clear the Senate with only a simple majority.

Though Democrats will still be able to drag out a nomination by filibustering, Republicans will only need 51—instead of 60 votes—to break the stonewalling.

Comity is almost always overstated, and often overrated. Charles Sumner found that out, the hard way. What we've got today is pale in comparison.

Just for the record, none of us need you to identify opinions for us. That's my opinion.

If they were to advise the President that way it would be good advice. 1)In negotiations, if the other side never wins then they are not inclined to negotiate with you anymore, and 2) it would maintain a balance in the court. That is important because good decision-making and problem-solving, aka the basis for the court's existence, requires alternative views to be effective.

I thought they are suppose to use the constitution as its basis of ruling on laws.

Not provide alternative views.

Surely so, but the Constitution is subject to interpretation, and when I say alternative views, I mean alternative interpretation. In the context of being a living and breathing document (aka contract), alternative interpretation over time is the ultimate value of the Consitution in addition to the right detailed therein. It's over 200 hundred years old and in terms of autonomy, the US Constitution is the most advanced government/citizen/state contract in the world (that's my opinion, and I am ready to defend that statement).

I'd definitely like to see another Originalist as the next new Supreme Justice. Ideally the SCOTUS would be composed of at least 6 Originalists with the other 3 also being strict Constitutionalists but not necessarily Originalists.

What I detailed in the post you seem to object to are inherent behaviors associated about negotiations with the intent to solve problems with decision making. What I said about decision-making and problem-solving are academically supported in both qualitative and quantitative studies in behavioral science.
