The Senate Judiciary Committee tied on Monday meaning that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to be an associate Supreme Court justice would NOT move forward without the Democrats using a procedural motion.
The vote was split among party lines, 11-11.
The last time this happened was back in 1991, when Associate Justice Clarence Thomas was up for consideration.
As a result of the tie, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from New York, will move to discharge the nomination.
A majority of Senators will then have to vote in support of the move to break the deadlock.
Situations like these are incredibly rare in America. The Hill reports that the last time such a thing happened was in 1853.
That’s a long time ago.
I guess liberal logic is just catching up.
