During Wednesday's edition of Deadline: White House, Never-Trumper Steve Schmidt said that while he believes that "Presidents should be afforded wide discretion with their Supreme Court nominations," he slammed Republicans, saying "they stole a Supreme Court seat from the Democrats."  According to Schmidt, "For the fabric of our democracy, Democrats should dig in hard here and do everything they conceivably can do to block this nomination, any nomination from going forward until after we see what happens in the midterm election."  After describing President Trump as "lawless" and anti-Democratic, he reiterated that "Democrats, I think, need to hold the line and be very, very tough in this moment and not allow this to go forward."
