Liberals’ Last-Minute Plagiarism Accusation Does Not Derail Gorsuch Confirmation

Looks like the liberals lost on this one, where the Democrats forced the Republicans’ hand to invoke the “nuclear option” (i.e. dismantle the filibuster) and followed the example of former Democratic U.S. Senator Harry Reid. This allowed the GOP to confirm President Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.

But, the liberals tried to derail Gorsuch’s confirmation vote by accusing him of plagiarism [1].

Yet, experts said it was not plagiarism [2]. Also, Gorsuch was confirmed, so this last-minute attempt fell short of accomplishing their goal.
