Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., planned to confirm dozens of President Trump’s judges by the close of the 115th Congress in December. But the judicial express has hit a major roadblock.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, had to cancel plans to clear a slate of 25 nominees because one panel member, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., won’t vote for them without a vote on a bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by Trump.

The article goes on to state the following:

While there is no direct relationship between the Mueller probe and the slate of nominees, Flake has yoked the two together.

Flake, who is retiring, has evolved into Trump’s biggest GOP congressional foe, chastising the president in floor speeches and on Twitter about his conduct and rhetoric, particularly in response to the Russia investigation, which Trump has labeled a witch hunt.

The report also included the following:

In addition to the 25 postponed nominees, there are 50 awaiting hearings and a final vote in the Judiciary Committee.

    Flake isn’t a republican, he is an liberal hack pretending to be one. He hates trump because he knows trump has known all along that he was a liberial plant.

    Another RINO plant by the Democrats. He’s got his marching orders. Hold the line and obstruct until they take over the house. Notice how the RINO plants play their part in obstructing Trumps administration. They are passive or quiet until they get their orders to obstruct and block, then they are as dedicated to the Democrats as the party whip.
