Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told Politico Tuesday he will back Merrick Garland’s nomination for Attorney General.

Asked by the publication whether he supported Garland’s nomination, the minority leader replied “I do.” However, the outlet reported that the senator did not elaborate further on his reasoning for the decision.

The article goes on to state the following:

McConnell blocked Garland as a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia following his death during the Obama administration, saying he would not allow consideration of a justice in an election year while the Senate and White House were held by opposite parties. Neil Gorsuch, then-President Trump’s nominee for the seat, was confirmed in 2017.

Several Republicans have already announced their support for him to lead the Justice Department, including Sen. Thom Tillisand, John Cornyn, and Chuck Grassley. The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, also spoke positively of Garland.

The Senate Judiciary Committee held a two-day confirmation hearing this week for Garland and will hold a committee vote on his nomination March 1.

  1. Why? The guy gave vague or no answer to their questions. It seems they already had their minds made up before he was ever asked anything.

    • Understandable however, issues, and a future candidates viewpoint for America should outweigh
      your blanket response to how one
      decides to vote! (Mitch)

  2. We need to shake well the Republican apple tree and let all the bad apples fall! Is unbelievable how many rhinos we have, they have been bought by the Democratic Party. Wondering how much they paid them!😡

  3. That’s a good little RINO , maybe you can get your communist card if you keep sucking up !!! Coward. Blamed Trump on Georgia over the stimulus checks,, he knew it would sink the election,, TRAITOR !

  4. Keeping him around was such a had idea.
    GOP does NOT know how to clean house.
    So many doing what appears to be so little. Shameful. The same 3 or 4 always doing the heavy lifting but not united majority. If this was a football team half of our players would be sabotaging plays and helping score for the other teams. My heart breaks to see our Republic on such tenuous ground. Our longstanding Allies, Military, Veterans also have to be so disheartened. The collapse of America before our eyes is worldshaking.
    But not Faithshaking.

  5. Garland looks like a total incompetent fool!
    Of course McConnell likes him. Fits his calcifications to a tee. If it looks wrong, smells bad and can’t answer questions why then it’s perfect for a high position in our government! Thanks Mitch!
