As Republicans accept Biden as a true president-elect, they turn to ways to oppose his nominees and create havoc in a new administration.
In a court of law, the silence of Republicans in Congress could be the actions of “unindicted co-conspirators.” Like Trump, they became enemies of America.
Will a bitter, Republican Senate refuse to compromise? It might still listen to the deposed Donald Trump.
Biden most likely faces a Republican-controlled Senate that still embraces failed president Donald Trump and a weakened Democratic leadership in the House.
The odds remain long for Democratic hopes to take control of the Senate.
By forcing a tradition-busting, norm-busting confirmation of a hard-core right-winger with limited judicial experience, Republicans, Donald Trump, and Mitch McConnell ignored the Constitution and the law.
With few House contests contested, and polls showing some increase in the House majority, it seems that only Trump thinks Republicans will recapture control.
Republicans never had enough votes to defeat Barrett, so the GOP Senator put her re-election hopes ahead of what she said she believed in.
Nothing — not the law, the norms of the Constitution — seems to bother the GOP in its manhandling of the nomination protocol.
The arguments have little effect to a GOP majority that is determined to put another right-wing voice on the high court.
