Merrick Garland’s nomination approved by Senate Judiciary, with Grassley, Graham, Cornyn and Tillis voting with Democrats to advance the pick to the floor. Sasse, Lee, Hawley, Cotton, Kennedy, Cruz and Blackburn voted NO
You can always count on Ben Sasse to say one thing and do another, like voting AGAINST Judge Garland. WTF?
What a turd.
So much for Sasse! He talks a good game but acts like Collins when the chips are down. I’m done with him. https://t.co/2jk9FS5kup
Sasse, Lee, Hawley, Cotton, Kennedy, Cruz, and Blackburn voted NO on Merrick Garland's confirmation for AG.
That he voted yes for Kavanaugh and no for Garland tells you all you need to know about Ben Sasse.
NEW: The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Merrick Garland for AG 15 to 7 (the seven are Blackburn, Cotton, Cruz, Hawley, Kennedy, Lee and Sasse). He now advances for a full Senate vote to confirm.
New: Senate Judiciary has voted to send AG nomination of Merrick Garland to the full Senate for a vote
Vote was 15-7. Senators Grassley, Cornyn, Tillis and Graham joined Democrats voting Yes.
Republicans Lee, Cruz, Sasse, Hawley, Cotton, Kennedy, & Blackburn voted No
These senators voted YES on Betsy DeVos, but NO on Miguel Cardona—an actual former public school teacher:
Sasse, Lee, Hawley, Cotton, Kennedy, Cruz and Blackburn voted NO to confirm Garland????
It must be Monday
It's unsurprising that Sasse voted against Merrick Garland. Sasse has been trying to have it both ways for a long time. He performs "reasonable" in some moments and then panders to his base in the clutch. He's just Jeff Flake with a better smile and a few more degrees. That's it.
2024 National Republican Primary:
Trump Jr. 8%
Tim Scott 1%
Credit where it’s due, I wasn’t expecting Sasse to object. Grassley, Graham, Cornyn are nonstop disappointments. They just voted for a guy clearly not prepared to serve as AG who backs every radical policy of the Left. No excuse for this https://t.co/DvSQC0NH87
let this serve as a reminder that the main reason Ben Sasse is so terrible is that he pretends he's not https://t.co/Ro0klV8536
Sasse, Lee, Hawley, Cotton, Kennedy, Cruz and Blackburn voted no on Merrick Garland. Because they know they will be implicated at some point for Jan 6
He will be confirmed.
The Senate Judiciary Committee advanced the nomination of Merrick Garland for AG to the full Senate for a vote!
Of course the asshat gang of Blackburn, Cruz, Kennedy, Cotton, Hawley, Lee & Sasse voted against Garland.
Guesses on who else will vote no?
Sens. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Mike Lee of Utah, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Ted Cruz of Texas, and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee.
Who was polled? Antifa? Arestees free on cashless bail? Illegal immigrants? The Cheney, Romney and Sasse families? Diplomats from Chinese embassies?
Ben Sasse at the end of the day is a Republican. Just because he was rightfully disgusted by Donald Trump doesn't mean he's one of the good guys.
