As far as the potential replacement pick, Grassley said he wouldn't be surprised if President Trump chose a nominee from the same list from which he selected Gorsuch. Republicans now have 52 seats in the Senate, all but ensuring any GOP-favored nominee would sail through. He said a resignation was "rumored", and that he expected President Donald Trump's next nominee to the high court to be picked from the same list as Justice Merrick Garland.
