Republicans cancel LONG LIST of judicial nominees – because Jeff Flake is voting with DEMS

Although the Senate was able to confirm a judge today with Mike Pence’s tie-breaking vote, Jeff Flake was able to force Republicans to cancel a long list of judicial nominees they were going to get through the judiciary committee Thursday.

They’re pretty happy about who is being blocked:

The entire list is actually YUGE:

So what are they gonna do? I suppose Republicans can just wait until after the new term starts, since they’ll have all the votes they need and Flake will be gone. Or will they do what he wants and pass the protection for Mueller? Given that they blocked it today, it’s clear that they won’t do that. If Trump is actually scared of what the report may hold, as many on the left is saying, then he’ll act before Dems takeover the House. Either way, it’s going to get very interesting in the coming months.

Here’s Ben Sasse on Flake’s stand against Trump:
