Senate Judiciary Committee Delays Votes on Trump’s Judicial Picks Thanks to RINO Jeff Flake
The Senate Judiciary Committee has delayed votes on nearly two dozen of Trump’s judicial picks because RINO Jeff Flake is withholding his vote amid a Mueller standoff.
Six circuit court nominees and 15 district court nominees were expected to be voted on, reported The Hill.
Last month outgoing Arizona Senator Jeff Flake vowed to withhold his vote for any judicial nominees until legislation protecting dirty cop Robert Mueller is brought for a vote.
Last Wednesday, the Senate once again blocked a bill to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia witch hunt, creating a potential logjam to get Trump’s judicial picks installed.
Because of Jeff Flake’s protest, the Senate Judiciary Committee once again cancelled a session to vote judicial nominees out of the Committee.

Senators Flake and Coons previously introduced the Special Counsel Integrity Act in order to protect dirty cop Robert Mueller and McConnell shot it down.
Jeff Flake wants to be a pain in the ass for President Trump and his supporters until the very last day he leaves office, which is in less than a month.
“I have informed the Majority Leader that I will not vote to advance any of the 21 judicial nominees pending in the Judiciary Committee or vote to confirm the 32 judges awaiting confirmation on the Senate floor until S.2644 is brought to the full Senate for a vote,” Flake previously said.
It is unclear if or when the Judiciary Panel will schedule another meeting for a vote.
Jeff Flake can’t leave fast enough. Good riddance.
