The law is on Trump's side on this one.

Sorry.

😬


The law is, but the validity of law has never been challenged on the provision for acting principal officers. They might find the law is not sufficient in the case of replacing PAS officers with non-PAS officials, even if they are senior enough to qualify under the VRA.

Trump may very well want him in as permanent. How do you know he doesn’t?

This sums up the entire thread. Your argument is based on "what if's". Never a good way to lead an argument.

When did you pass the bar exam and in what state? A state of intoxication?


And a Senator can get a nominee to pledge something or he or she won't vote for the nominee.


I did pass the bar exam and have been licensed to practice in Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, the 4th and 6th Circuit Courts and the Supreme Court, and he's right.Even an acting AG must have been confirmed at some point, and the vacancies Act is law.

Pledges are not part of a Senate confirmation.

😎

And Trump has the legal authority for Whitaker.

🚬💨



Yep, this guy is the one we should all listen to. The guy that is so lost he thinks news from 2 yeats who is current and gives links that disprove his own arguments.

But, yeah, let’s listen to you when you tell us that Trump has legal authority even when legal scholars say otherwise. Unless you have some proof to go along with your bravado, go stand in the corner.

Is Whitaker still in his position?
Have the Senate succession police removed him yet?

Has a "temporary" appointment EVER been impeached?
