Grassley to McCconnel-start working!
http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/11...les-243669

Article is about the archaic blue slip rule, which is being abused by the Democrats with TDS. But this from Grassley, who supports the rule:

"...Foy, the Grassley spokesman, said the Judiciary chairman will address "abuses" of the blue-slip tradition on a "case-by-case basis."
"He has also said on many occasions that the full Senate should dedicate more time to considering nominees that have already been reported out of the Judiciary Committee," Foy added.
So far this year, the Senate Judiciary Committee has held hearings for 24 of President Donald Trump's judicial nominees, and hearings for five more candidates are scheduled for Tuesday. The panel has cleared 17 nominees, but 10 of them have yet to receive a confirmation vote on the Senate floor.
Grassley has also repeatedly said the Senate should skip its recesses, particularly so senators can confirm more judges...."

We'll see if Grassley is a man of his word...

From an op-ed in 2015:

"...For nearly a century, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee has brought nominees up for committee consideration only after both home-state senators have signed and returned what's known as a "blue slip." This tradition is designed to encourage outstanding nominees and consensus between the White House and home-state senators. Over the years, Judiciary Committee chairs of both parties have upheld a blue-slip process, including Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, my immediate predecessor in chairing the committee, who steadfastly honored the tradition even as some in his own party called for its demise. I appreciate the value of the blue-slip process and also intend to honor it."
