Anywho, the Senate Judiciary Committee is voting to advance Steven Menashi's nomination on Thursday. Thing to watch: If @SenJohnKennedy follows through with his complaints about Menashi and votes no. If he does, and all Dems vote no, Menashi's nomination would be toast.

A thing that will probably get lost this week: Steven Menashi is getting his Senate Judiciary Cmte vote. He's Trump's pick for a lifetime seat on a U.S. appeals court who 1) is only 40 2) refused to answer senators' ?s about his WH work 3) said all this. https://t.co/iuCVXf9dTe https://t.co/Q5YWAVhSns
