Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Democrat Senator Jeff Merkley Finally Gives in After a 15 Hour Filibuster

While standing next to a version of the U.S. Constitution, Democrat Senator Jeff Merkley yielded the floor this morning after a 15 hour filibuster in his protest of Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch.

This comes days after two SEnate Democrats confirmed they would both be voting to confirm the Judge.

Merkley started his gesture to stop Gorsuch’s confirmation at around 7:00 pm and it lasted until morning.

His initial tweet announcing his intent didn’t explain why he would do so.

But, once on the floor he spoke brilliantly, passionately of the alarming reason for his filibuster:

“I’ve been here through the night talking about this to say how important this is that we not do this, that to proceed to fill this stolen seat that will damage the court for decades to come and damage the Senate for decades to come,” he said Wednesday morning.

Sen. Merkley assured that it is important to block Judge Neil Gorsuch because reasons, and it is not because of them losing the election. Instead of even trying to explain his block of Gorsuch, he just tried to get brownie points from the simple fact that he filibustered:

“I’ve been here through the night talking about this to say how important this is that we not do this, that to proceed to fill this stolen seat that will damage the court for decades to come and damage the Senate for decades to come,” Merkley said.

“Such a theft never, ever has happened in the history of our nation,” he added. “If you can steal one seat and get away with it, the temptation next time is to steal another seat.”
