If you watched Berlin Station 2 you might find this amusing

Obviously the president is trying to get this guy through so he can carry out the plot of the TV series (sarcasm — sorry, I couldn’t resist). Bradford Winters was right!



Seriously speaking: SFRC cleared the nominee in October. It’s the job of the majority party to schedule votes on nominations. That’s the job of the GOP. If a Dem is holding the vote up, then all they need to do is schedule a vote and see if that person is willing to out themselves, and what happens afterward. That’s how it works, folks. And I’d like to point out that I learned this in American Government in high school, so it’s not rocket science. Good news for the president, though: the fact of the 2018 midterms means that they are likely to do more work on confirming nominations, because every actual public policy measure they might legislate on is considered too controversial in the current atmosphere. Fiddling while Rome burns? You got it. We elect you people to govern and you had better start.
