Democrats Should Have Approved Gorsuch, Says Project 21’s Shelby Emmett

Were Senate Republicans right to exercise the nuclear option in order to confirm U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Grouch?

“The Democrats asked for this,” responded Project 21’s Shelby Emmett on RT Network’s “The Big Picture” last night. “What goes around comes around.”

Emmett continued: “I think the Democrats did something not really smart here strategically, because he wasn’t that horrible of a judge. They were really fighting to try to find things wrong with him. And if I was Trump, the next judge is going to be ten times more conservative and now what? If I were the Democrats, I would have let this one fly and I would have put up a bigger fight for the next one.”

The panel also discussed Stephen Bannon being removed from the National Security Council.
