Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., took the first steps Friday to advance Amy Coney Barrett for a Supreme Court confirmation vote despite delay tactics from Democrats, including forcing a rare closed-door session that's typically reserved for national security matters.
Senate Republicans voted in favor of a procedural motion to enter executive session to begin debating Barrett's nomination -- teeing up a final vote on Barrett's nomination Monday.
"Let's get on with it. Let's do our jobs," said McConnell, while hitting Democrats for efforts to undercut Barrett and previous GOP nominees. "We will give this nominee the vote she deserves no later than Monday."

The President has spoken:
“Let’s get this done.”
Yup. We need her seated next week to start striking down voter fraud approved by other courts.
Let’s get her done.
Perhaps Chuck-U should be reminded of Odumbocare, which was rammed through by a one-vote Democrat majority with no Republican votes at all.
Hey that’s what we talked about before :)
It will be a great thing.
Brethren, I tell you a miracle has happened!
I read this, thought of ex-Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) ... and SMILED!
Hey, that vote was literally bought and paid for. There were a bunch of “deals” with various State reps to get them to vote for it.
Schumer’s quiver is empty.
“”Let’s get on with it. Let’s do our jobs,” said McConnell, while hitting Democrats for efforts to undercut Barrett and previous GOP nominees. “We will give this nominee the vote she deserves no later than Monday.””
It’s good to see Cocaine Mitch earning his salary.
Kabuki for the Media & their uninformed electorate. They’re want it to look like Butch & Sundance in Bolivia going down in a blaze of glory. A defeat is a defeat no matter how you romanticize it.
Maybe Schmuck Chumer’s name should be spelled Choomer. It would explain a lot about his perception of the world in recent years.
Maybe there is a method in the slowness ..
yes........and don't forget it was Maine's own Olympia Snowe(R) that allowed it out of committee and then voted NO knowing the Dems had the votes to pass it on its own....
SHE IS THE TRUE MOTHER OBAMACARE!!..
Had she voted NO in the committee there would never even been a vote on Obamacare!
So yes..the Swamp is very very deep with RINO’s too!
That is so funny. The best one of them all.
If memory serves me, wasn’t Obamacare “DEEMED” to have passed?
Yes, that truly was the critical vote to pass it so we could find out what was in it.
Has been for quite some time.
