Senate GOP to block Biden appointees in retaliation for “radical lawfare” waged against Trump
06/18/2024 // Belle Carter // Views

Senate Republicans led by Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) recently announced that they are planning to block President Joe Biden's four dozen new set of nominees in protest against the administration's "radical lawfare" against former President Donald Trump and other political opponents.

"We can't reward the Biden administration for engaging in lawfare," Vance told host Harris Faulkner at Fox News Channel's "The Faulkner Focus" on Friday, pointing out the two main reasons why they will be blocking the appointees. The first is retaliation for Trump's conviction and the second, he said, "is to deny Joe Biden some foot soldiers that he has shown he will use to go after his political opposition."

According to Vance, if the nominees "support the weaponization and the criminalization of politics," "we're not going to allow you to have this job, or at the very least, we're going to force the Democrats to fight for it."

Vance, alongside Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) and Eric Schmitt (R-MO), spearheaded the effort. The appointees include judicial nominees, a nominee for deputy undersecretary for the Treasury Department and a general counsel nominee for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

The senators emphasized that their action is a collective effort and not reliant on a single member's willingness to hold every nominee. They pledged to defend against any attempts to fast-track the confirmation of Biden's nominees.

"In a continuing response to the current administration's persecution of President Donald Trump, we will not allow the fast-tracking of any Biden Article III court judicial nominees, as well as Biden U.S. attorney nominations," a statement that was issued following Trump's scheduled meeting with House and Senate Republicans, indicated.

They also said that they will not permit the fast-tracking of nominees who have suggested the Trump prosecutions were reasonable, endorsed Trump's guilt in these sham proceedings, joined or supported organizations that celebrated the indictment of Trump, supported the 'get-Trump' candidacy of Alvin Bragg or supported lawfare or censorship in other ways.

"This complement to the pledge of May 31 will last until election day when the American people will have the opportunity to decisively reject attempts to settle political disputes through the legal system," it further included.

The planned blockade will surely make Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) spend significant time confirming these nominees, which will also delay the process of appointing and installing them into government posts.

Vance makes it to Trump's running mates' shortlist

A couple of weeks back, Trump's campaign began the process of formally requesting information from potential running mates and candidates for vice president.

"Anyone claiming to know who or when President Trump will choose his VP is lying unless the person is named Donald J. Trump," said Brian Hughes, a senior adviser for the Trump campaign. While the former president hasn't yet indicated who he will pick to be his vice president, he has said he plans to make his announcement closer to the Republican National Convention, which is in July.

According to reports, Vance joins other candidates on the Veepstakes shortlist, such as North Dakota Gov. Doug Burnum and Sens. Marco Rubio and Tim Scott.

"It's ultimately Donald Trump's decision. There's a lot of talented people to pick from," Vance said in a Fox News interview. "I'm very interested in helping him out, whatever that looks like. So if that means I'm helping out the people of Ohio and the Trump agenda in the Senate, that's great. If he asked me to serve, I certainly would."

In recent months Vance has made multiple efforts to display his support of Trump, such as campaigning with him in Ohio, attending Trump's New York City court trial, promoting Trump-backed legislation in Congress and hedging on whether he would accept the 2024 election results.

Vance also appears often on television news shows that Trump is known to watch. The national name recognition from television appearances could benefit Vance in the future, whether or not he is ultimately chosen as Trump's running mate.

During a phone interview on Newsmax earlier in June, Trump was asked if he was close to deciding on picking a running mate and complimented Vance, Rubio and Burgum.

"I thought Tim Scott didn't run as good of a race as he's capable of running for himself, but as a surrogate for me, he's unbelievable. He's been incredible," Trump said. "Gov. Burgum from North Dakota has been incredible. Marco Rubio has been great. J.D. Vance has been great. We've had so many great people out there."
