Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA): Expect a Supreme Court resignation 'this summer'
Here we go again...
From day one of the Trump candidacy, I've said "If he denies the Democrats a Supreme Court appointment, his presidency is worth it." No matter what else happens, the SCOTUS was and is the key to salvaging the country. Had Hillary been allowed to alter it, it would have been disastrous. Fortunately, President Trump won and Neil Gorsuch is now on the bench.
Now, people are starting to wonder just how many bites at the Supreme Court apple Trump is going to get. He’s already had one. If Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is right, a second is virtually guaranteed, and we can start speculating about three or four.
From the Muscatine Journal:
Earlier in the year, Ted Cruz made similar comments when he claimed that "odds are very good" that a vacancy would present itself during the summer months. Whether these Senators have some inside info, or are just playing the odds, remains to be seen.
Either way, it's not a huge surprise, since a quick look at the ages of three justices will give you a good indication that the court is about to undergo a major shake-up.
Justice Breyer: 78
Justice Kennedy: 81
Justice Ginsburg: 84
Those ages suggest that, if Trump gets another term, he could end up filling as many as four seats during his presidency. Thanks to Harry Reid, they'll all be confirmed with a simple majority.
