From my limited knowledge of the going ons in American politics and your judicial system down there I’ve been able to ascertain that the president will appoint a judge and then people will accuse that judge of touching them inappropriately decades ago with little to no evidence. Then everyone will pick a side of believing the accuser or not believing them and argue like retards.  Then that person will become a judge.

 

It’s ingeniously simple really.

Trump picks a nominee.

Senate gives its advice & consent, which means a hearing and a vote.

 

51 simple majority needed to confirm. Typically takes around 60-70 days.

 

Yes, it can happen before 2021.

 

No, there is no "rule" preventing it.

The President and the Senate are who nominates and appoints the federal judges. The Republicans control the Presidency and Senate. There is nothing that can stop them unless some Republicans defect on the vote and they "lose" the majority.

In a tie, the Vice President is the deciding vote which of course would be in line with the President. So a tie is good enough.

There are a few Republican Senators that lean left or are affected by Trump derangement syndrome that might side with the libs. That is the only thing that would stop this nomination.

50 is the number of Senators the GOP needs.

VP can play tie-breaker if needed.

No.  There are 100 U.S. Senators.  The Senate must pass a majority vote.  So technically, 51 votes are needed to “pass”.

Yes it can happen and will I think.

Basically Trump has a short list of people who he would like to see. Then he nominates one of them.

That person then goes in front of the senate judiciary committee ( 11 rep 9 dems ) and be questioned. Committee gives its recommendation.

Then once that is over, the senate votes.

51 votes are needed ( simple majority ) for that person to become the next supreme court judge.

If its a tie, Pence is the tie breaker

 

 

Some notes:
That whole "RBG last wish to wait for a new president to fill her seat" holds zero water. You will see that in the news.

The whole "can't elect a judge during an election year"....again holds zero water.

Trump doesn't stop being president in the last year. They SHOULD and WILL nominate and push a judge through.

Literally there are only two Constituional steps:  The President Nominates, and the Senate votes on it. 

But because it is political they will make the person go through an "interview" process with the some of the Senators. Then there will be an offical hearing, where the Judicial committee will vote. If that works, then it goes to the full Senate.

That process can take six weeks to three months.

There is mo longer a filibuster for judges. The Dems did that.

McConnel can set any rules he wants. It will go fast.

This is what the Dems get for fucking with Trump.

Schumer prevented Trump from appointing hundreds of political appointees by requiring 30 hours of debate on ALL of them for almost three years. 

Trump will not have forgotten this.

This is tragically accurate. Clarence Thomas allegedly put one of his pubes on a bitch's coke and became a SC judge.
