Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. May her memory be a blessing.
2020 just got worse. And will they wait till after the election to fill the vacancy like last time...? Not counting on it.
@andybroomfield Can't Dems just hold up the next appointment like McConnell did with Garland?
@clacke That doesn't surprise me at all, I already knew he was a shameless hypocrite @andybroomfield
@clacke @andybroomfield "If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump's term, and the primary process has started, we'll wait to the next election"- Lindsey Graham, Oct. 2018
@InternetKevin @clacke Mitch McConnell has already said he will fill the vacancy. It’s just power dynamics, not principle. Last time they just wanted to deny Obama’s choice.
@andybroomfield @clacke "A basic principle of the law — and of everyday fairness — is that we apply rules with consistency, and not based on what’s convenient or advantageous in the moment"
@hankg @andybroomfield well if the nominee is Ted Cruz I would argue that he should not be on the Supreme court because according to the President of the United States he is the son of the guy who shot JFK.
