Trump Sues Merrick Garland in a Last-Ditch Effort to Derail His Supreme Court Nomination

In what may be his last-ditch effort to stall the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has filed a civil suit against Garland to force the Senate Judiciary Committee to reconsider President Obama’s nominee.

In this lawsuit, Trump cites that Garland’s bad court thingy will cause America irreparable harm and damage on all levels, especially the level of the court thingy. The lawsuit also alleges that Garland, currently chief judge of D.C.

Trump’s Attempted Block

President Trump made a last-ditch effort to block the nomination of Chief Judge Merrick Garland. In his previous court battles, he has been unsuccessful with attempts to have cases overturned and decisions reversed. Recently, an unapproved plan was unearthed that contained previously undisclosed information about President Trump’s first week as president.

The released documents revealed government communication links between the Russian officials who allegedly hacked the Presidential Election and President Trump himself. As more information is revealed about the extent of this ordeal, it is now blatantly clear that it would be better for the judicial branch if they did not have any association with President Obama’s failed presidency.

Long Legal History

The case began when President Trump nominated, and the Senate confirmed, U.S. Circuit Judge Neil Gorsuch as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. At the time, Obama administration attorney (now US Circuit Judge) Merrick Garland was sitting in an open seat that had been vacant for more than 1 year.

Trump, who was himself nominated during an election year and confirmed by Congress, has alleged that he never would have been elected if not for his SCOTUS nomination. If I didn’t have my spot on the bench, I wouldn’t be here now, Trump told reporters yesterday. That’s just how it works.

He went on to allege that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had made a promise, many years ago at a cocktail party of some sort or another, that he would give Trump any seat he wanted. There is no record of such an agreement between McConnell and Trump but they are both republicans so it’s plausible.

Previous Rulings

Merrick Garland’s nomination is a political game-changer. He has been supported by both parties and could tip the balance of the bench to an even split, which would eliminate the need for judicial fiat.

In response, Donald Trump has taken yet another hardline stance and announced he will sue SCOTUS nominee Merrick Garland. To mitigate this situation from spiraling out of control, let’s take a closer look at what happened with President Obama’s court pick:

In 2010 President Obama nominated Elena Kagan for associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court following Justice Stevens’ retirement. Her nomination was approved unanimously by the Senate in September of that year.

Is There A Case?

President Trump sued D.C. Circuit Chief Judge Merrick Garland for doing something bad at the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, mere hours before his nominee Brett Kavanaugh is set to be sworn in as the newest member of the bench. The case is Trump v. Garland, and it could impact where Kavanaugh takes his seat on the court.

According to the presiding judge, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, this is an unprecedented case that has rarely been invoked. This very well could lead to questions being raised about whether there are any ways that Trump’s actions might slow down Kavanaugh’s ascension onto the bench or thwart his nomination altogether…

The Case For Case

The Republican Party has been trying every way possible to derail Merrick Garland’s nomination as the next Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Donald Trump decided that he had one more idea: to file suit against Mr. Garland for this court thingy.

Trump’s campaign claims that since a sitting president should not be subjected to an FBI background check, that the President of the United States should be exempt from having to appoint or nominate someone else for this court thingy when his term expires. It is unclear how they are going about this, as Mr.

What Happens Next?

Merrick’s nomination is scheduled for Thursday, March 23rd. If you want to ensure that Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, does not get confirmed, then make sure you call your Senators and tell them not to vote for him.

He’s been labeled as an extremist who has bad opinions about things like women’s rights and voting rights. More importantly, he won’t bring any mainstream sensibility to the court. For these reasons it would be better if they voted no instead of yes on his confirmation.
