McConnell confirms he will ram through a Supreme Court confirmation just before the election if it o

Published 4 hours ago on February 13, 2020
By Matthew Chapman

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) confirmed on Fox News that he will force through a Supreme Court confirmation if a seat becomes vacant between now and the election in November.

“If you’re asking me a hypothetical about whether this Republican Senate would confirm a member of the Supreme Court due to a vacancy created this year — yeah, we would fill it,” he said.

This is a complete reversal of McConnell’s attitude after Justice Antonin Scalia died four years ago to the day. At that time, he said President Barack Obama had no right to make a nomination in an election year, and the American people should decide the next justice in the presidential election — and he falsely claimed that Vice President Joe Biden had already set such a precedent.

He claims this situation is different because in now, the White House and the Senate are the same party — another new rule he apparently invented out of thin air.

1. Go TT!!!

And you know what? If a spot came open in December 2020 after we win in November, he would do his best to cram in a new justice before January 20th!!!

F*** You Moscow Mitch!

8. Golly, what a shock!

I hope none of the media folks who swallowed his bullshit line from 2016 will be surprised. Maybe Clarence Thomas is sick, though?

14. Evil McConnell

As if we had to hear him saying this out loud. We already know what a traitor this guy is to the country. He just keeps confirming it.

"It's my nature to poison and kill" McConnell continued.

16. Why did he even bother with his lame excuses in 2016?

Just state that you have the power to stop it and that's what you'll do because it's in the interests of your Party.

17. If Trump loses big in November and agrees to step down

Moscow Mitch would ram through a SCOTUS justice in record time in the lame duck session if a spot opened up on November 4th - he doesn't care.

18. They are setting precedent for us to just make our own rules, so lets overturn...

their Supreme Court confirmations and do our own.

Their side lies, cheats, steals to get what they want. Our side turns over and plays dead and lets them walk all over us. If our side would actually do what they need to do to fight this stuff and start ramming our own people through, they wouldn't get away with it on their side anymore.

19. He really is the biggest threat to our country.

The biggest threat to freedom is our move toward a one party, authoritarian state. Mitch McConnell is certainly helping bring that.
