Tom Steyer and 'Need to Impeach' says:

In 2016, Republicans refused to allow President Obama to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court, insisting that the seat be left open until after the election. They held up his pick, Merrick Garland, for eight months. “Give the people a voice,” Senator McConnell said at the time.

The Garland nomination was in March of that year — eight months before the 2016 election. Trump won’t make his nomination until July, just four months before the midterms. There should be no hearings before then.

And that means Senate Democrats must hold the line. Republicans have declared war on our democracy, and the American people need to see Democrats in the fight. We must do all we can to prevent any Trump nominee from getting confirmed. Impeachment is now polling at Watergate levels of support. These are not normal times, and concerns over normal Senate procedure no longer apply.

Republicans and Democrats alike have said the American people should have their voices heard. Make your voice heard now. Demand your Senators do everything they can to block any Trump nominee.
