Singing A Different Tune From 2016 McConnell Is In A Rush To Fill Ginsberg’s Seat on The Supreme Court
Mitch McConnell in 2016 on Supreme Court Nominee
“‘The American people are perfectly capable of having their say on this issue, so let's give them a voice. Let's let the American people decide. The Senate will appropriately revisit the matter when it considers the qualifications of the nominee the next president nominates, whoever that might be,’ McConnell said.” CNBC
Mitch McConnell in 2020 on Supreme Court Nominee
“In a statement issued just over an hour after the Supreme Court said that Ginsburg had passed, McConnell said the nominee, who has not been named, ‘will receive a vote on the floor.’” CNBC
When Obama made his nomination the election was 10 months away.
In 2020 McConnell issues a statement within 46 days of an election.
Why not trust the American people. In 2016 the American people were perfectly capable of having their say on the issue and McConnell was all about letting the American people decide. Why not now?
Finally, “…Ginsburg told her family before she died that it was her ‘fervent wish’ that she not be replaced until a new election is held.” CNBC
