WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared Friday he will support President Donald Trump in attempting to fill the late justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat this fall, despite the imminent presidential election.

“Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary. Once again, we will keep our promise,” he said in a press release. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

The article goes on to state the following:

McConnell famously refused to allow former president Barack Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to proceed in 2016. At the time, McConnell argued it was an election year and voters should decide who filled the next Supreme Court seat; Garland was nominated in March of that year, eight months away from the election.

Below is McConnell’s full statement:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had previously demanded that Ginsburg should not be replaced until a new president is in office.

  1. McConnell actually getting a spine…??? I’ll believe it when I see it… You know Dems would put in a replacement post haste if the situation were reversed…

    • The situation was reversed in 2016 and McConnell prevented a replacement from taking place. So based on that how can he justify a replacement now?

      • Times changed. Dems have not worked with this administration or for the better of our citizens. There is no doubt in my mind now that if the role was reversed, The Dems would definitely not wait.
        All I can say is stick to your word McConnell!

  2. Heads are already exploding on the left. Now if the turtle can get the votes, we actually might see a conservative SC that believes in the US Constitution.

  3. The democrats would do it in secret tonight if they had that power . Anything Obama wanted should have been turned down along with everything he did .Everything he did was illegal and they knew it. Should erase him and execute him Get that judge now And Utah tell Romney and Mike Lee to not hold up this process . Tennessee two Alexander to not stop it as well . We have lots no memories

  4. The only reason obama didn’t do it in 2016 is because he thought that with all the cheating they did killary was a sure winner, so no big deal.
