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.

That would be good to me. I hope Trump has another solid nominee ready to pencil in when Kennedy steps down.

While a simple explanation, that is exactly what any court does. Are you arguing the courts do not make decisions to solve problems? Further, the decisions are not black and white. If the decision is black and white for the courts, then why would any problem in question go to the Supreme Court? The courts are there to interpret the gray areas, not merely the black and white. The black and white stuff is clear by definition.

The decisions are certainly black and white, and if you don't believe that, look at how the 3 sluts on the court rule. 100% left. Where is their compromise? Where is there "grey area"?



Don't be a moron. Just bow out of this thread while you still can.

No, that's not what it does, at all.

No, I'm arguing that your position is ridiculous. It doesn't even rise to a child's understanding. This isn't a church social, where Millie's teacakes v. Annie's scones is the issue of the day, and where compromise is easy and largely insignificant. This is the USSC, where competing theories about the Constitution and the country shape the lives of more than 300 million people and, to a lesser extent, the world. You can't really negotiate between "Living document" and "Originalist", at the core, because they are fundamental opposites.

He's incapable of respect. He has to hurl insults 24/7. Even when you haven't done it.

This from the woman who consistently throws words like "Neocon" and "Statist" around as ad hom insults.

Constitutional questions that reach the SCotUS are rarely black and white. Otherwise they would not be infront of the ScotUS

I did not say that the decisions are trivial or otherwise say they are easy. You are talking about the impact of decisions and I am talking about a methodical approach for making good decisions, making good decisions requires consideration of an alternative point of view. That's why we need balance in our SCotUS, to make good decisions, especially since you state that those decisions are significant.

No, I'm talking about your claim that we need balance and comity in the SCOTUS.

Balance has been the problem for decades. It's precisely the opposite of what is needed.
