McConnell: Gorsuch ‘Will Be Confirmed This Week’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) sent a bold message to Senate Democrats on "Meet the Press" Sunday.

"What I can tell you is Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed this week," McConnell said.

McConnell went on to hint that if the Democrats tried to filibuster the nomination then he was prepared to use the "nuclear option."

McConnell also said on Fox News Sunday that no Supreme Court nominee has ever been stopped because of a partisan filibuster.
