Democratic senator vows investigation into GOP mega-donor who stole SCOTUS seat for Gorsuch

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) is weighing in on the testimony acting attorney general Matt Whitaker before the House Judiciary Committee on Friday, and he’s suggesting that the Supreme Court seat currently occupied by Justice Neil Gorsuch was stolen with an $18 million donation from a GOP mega-donor.

Friday evening, Whitehouse posted his impressions of Whitaker’s performance earlier in the day on Twitter:

Whitehouse also sent a clear message that he is far from done looking into the matter of how Gorsuch was appointed to a seat the was supposed to be held by President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland:

Now the Democrats are in control of the House, we may finally get to the bottom of the money trails that seem to lead from the GOP to their eventual nominee, the current president, Donald Trump. And following the money is likely to uncover all kinds of illegal activity on the part of both Republicans and Trump.
