NEXT SUPREME COURT JUSTICE NOMINEE
MITCH McCONNELL: TRUMPS NEXT SCOTUS PICK WILL RECEIVE A VOTE ON THE SENATE FLOOR
Not wasting any time, And in typical poor taste, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said unequivocally Friday night,
That President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,
“will receive a vote on the floor of the United, States Senate.”
Ginsburg, 87, died Friday from complications surrounding metastatic pancreas cancer.
“The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,
And the conclusion of her extraordinary American life,” McConnell said in a statement Friday.
“In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016,
Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term.
We kept our promise,” McConnell continued.
“Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.”
McConnell added that “by contrast, 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. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
