What Ginsburg Said Four Years Ago About Filling A SCOTUS Vacancy During An Election Year

SEPTEMBER 21, 2020 AT 2:42PM

While liberals continue to circulate and praise the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s “fervent wish” that her seat isn’t filled until after the November election, they have not been as eager to share what she thought about filling vacancies to the nation’s highest court before the 2016 presidential election.

When the GOP blocked former President Obama’s pick of Merrick Garland to fill the late Antonin Scalia’s seat through Republican-controlled Senate, Ginsburg instructed them to proceed with reviewing the nomination.



Most Democrats Believed The 2016 SCOTUS Vacancy Should Have Been Filled Before The Election
“That’s their job,” Ginsburg said to The New York Times. “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year.”
Then-President Barack Obama said basically the same thing in 2016.

“When there is a vacancy on the Supreme Court, the president is to nominate someone, the Senate is to consider that nomination'” Obama said. “There’s no unwritten law that says that it can only be done on off-years.” That’s not in the Constitution text.”

Biden Said In 2016 That Not Appointing A SCOTUS Justice Could Result In A ‘Constitutional Crisis’
Not surprisingly, 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden is now saying filling Ginsburg’s vacant SCOTUS seat should wait until after the election, though in 2016, the then-vice president believed that blocking Garland might result in a “constitutional crisis.”

Hillary Clinton also believes the nomination process should wait – but that’s not what she necessarily thought about Garland’s appointment four years ago.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said before the 2016 election, “Every day that goes by without a ninth justice is another day the American people’s business is not getting done.”


 

The Republican National Committee shared a video on Sunday with examples of what Democratic leaders were saying in 2016 about filling a seat during an election year.


 

Cruz Agrees With Biden (Four Years Ago) – Failure To Nominate A Justice Could Lead To A ‘Constitutional Crisis’
Sen. Ted Cruz – similar to Democrats in 2016 – worries that an eight-member court hading into the election could pose a “constitutional crisis.”

“Democrats and Joe Biden have made clear they intend to challenge this election,” Cruz said Friday on Fox News “Hannity.”

“They intend to fight the legitimacy of the election,” he said. “As you know, Hillary Clinton has told Joe Biden ‘under no circumstances should you concede, you should challenge this election.’”

“And we cannot have Election Day come and go with a 4-4 Court,” Cruz told Sean Hannity.

“A 4-4 Court that is equally divided cannot decide anything,” the senator continued. “And I think we risk a constitutional crisis if we do not have a nine-justice Supreme Court, particularly when there is such a risk of … a contested election.”

This gets a lot easier to sort out once you realize a few basic rules of citizenship.

Step 1: President nominates a SCOTUS candidate. Step 2: Senate confirms. Helps if the two are of the same party and of the same mindset. If not......tough sledding for any candidate.....at least in the modern era.

Schmucky and Bummer can whine all they wants, but there is no doubt what would happen if they were in charge. When the stars were aligned to their liking, their candidate would sail through no matter what the circumstances. I believe there are two women judges still on the bench that are proof of that.

When it didn't suit, the President's candidate would get crucified. Just the way it is. To say otherwise is nothing more than an obnoxious political puke shooting his mouth off.

I read the memes, seems the Libretards CANNOT get actual READING the LAWS as they were written as anything but Conservative, They(The Libretards) MUST re-interpret and Re-invent the wheel at EACH instance, much as the Definition of "Is" to a context by Slick Willie.

RBG is a perfect example why the supreme court should not be appointed for life, she only stayed on as long as she did for political purposes, trying to prevent Trump from filling another seat on the bench.

Pretty sure Garland was nominated and "ignored" more/less. Could be wrong...
