The Fix Is In: Moscow Mitch Rushes Judicial Confirmations

Moscow Mitch knows how to count votes, and he's pushing judicial confirmations like the building is on fire.

While many on Wednesday were watching the CNN Debate, Rachel Maddow hosted Kristine Lucius, Executive Vice-President for policy at the Leadership Conference. Ms. Lucius sounded an alarm:

KRISTINE LUCIUS: What Mitch McConnell is trying to do this week is confirm more judges in a week than he allowed President Obama to have confirmed in his final two years in office.

What's the rush, Moscow Mitch? As if we didn't know.
