Democrats stack up ways to torpedo Trump’s nominations by Daniel Chaitin.

Undeterred by its failed effort to stonewall Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, the Democratic leadership is going on a full-court press to resist President Trump’s nominations for judgeships and FBI director in the Senate. However, if they commit, the party risks losing the moral high ground it hung over the Republican Party’s head when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to schedule confirmation hearings for former President Barack Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland.

In the clearest symbol yet of the Democrats’ coming intransigence was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday that he “would support” fellow Democratic Sen. Mark Warner’s push to hold the not-yet-announced FBI director nominee hostage if the Trump administration doesn’t agree to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    It literally makes no sense that Trump would collude with the Russians, or that the Russians would collude with Trump. There is no motive. There is nothing to be gained.

    Hillary and the Liberals, on the other hand, have been a friend to Communists and Dictatorships for decades.
