Tillis attended a ceremony at the White House last weekend at which Amy Coney Barrett was formally nominated for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, according to CNN.

U.S. Sen. Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah and fellow member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also was at the event and has tested positive, NBC News has reported.

Barrett herself tested negative on Friday, but the two senators, along with Trump, first lady Melania Trump and top adviser Hope Hicks, mean at least five people at the event have been infected.


Senators Thom Tillis and Mike Lee have tested positive and both are on the senate judiciary committee who is responsible for sending any SCOTUS pick to the full senate. If neither of them can vote then it leaves a 10-10 tie in the committee.

House Democrats enabled "remote proxy voting" for House members this year.

As the article says, McConnell can enable that ability for the U.S. Senate too, if he wants to.

Nutjob Senator Chuck Schumer is demanding that Justice nominee Amy Comey-Barrett "Self-Isolate", because she touched people in the White House last week.

I kid you not: www.msn.com...

Chuckee.

Due to 18 members of Congress being infected, Democrats enabled proxy voting. The barn-door is now open (Thanks Nancy!) and the Senate can enact proxy-voting to confirm Amy Coney-Barrett without any legitimate whining from Democrats.

Senate leader Mitch-McConnell said this afternoon that he is sticking to the Coney-Barrett confirmation timeline. Has Lindsey Graham said anything? He can get kind of flip-floppy sometimes, for no apparent reason. The confirmation process begins in his Senate Judiciary committee.

Something the Republicans could do here is just bypass the committee hearings and go for a full vote if they think they have the votes for confirmation. The Dems would scream bloody murder but they wouldn't be able to stop it.
