    Of course it is the DUTY of the Senate to participate with the Executive branch in staffing the Federal judiciary as well as staffing the upper echelons of the Executive branch.

    The abuse and overuse of Senate rules to refuse to perform that basic mandated constitutional duty solely in order to engage in partisan warfare against the head of the Executive branch is unprecedented. It's effectively anti-constitutional. In reality it's a form of insurrection and it should be called out as such.

    Warren frames it in a way that it's more clear. Everyone else considers it a form of political gamesmanship and often they applaud the Republicans for their 'success' in achieving their aims.
