Monday on MSNBC while discussing Senate Democrats opposition to President Donald Trump Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Republicans have “no other choice” than the nuclear option of lowering the 60-vote filibuster threshold for a Supreme Court nominee to a simple majority.
Partial transcript as follows:
REPORTER: Mitch McConnell, the leader is prepared to go nuclear here?
GRAHAM: Yeah. We have no other choice. We’re not going to have a tradition of the senate where they get their judges and President Trump can’t get his.
REPORTER: When do you see potentially a floor vote?
GRAHAM: At the end of the week. It’s sad but we are where we are.
