Ginsburg Died

Lived a long life. RIP

Quick question, does Trump get to select the next justice?

Schumer:

"The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."


Ginsburg said in a statement she requested to be released after her death that her seat should not be filled until we have a new president.

So, Dems going to try to hold the seat open for four years, until Trump leaves office in 2024?? ... Lol. GTFOH

Considering the Dem plan to contest election regardless of the result, and potential for the legal cases to go to SCOTUS, Trump has to nominate, and McConnell has to confirm, a replacement before the election.

Cannot leave possibility of 4-4 decisions on election result.

There is no doubt Trump and the senate will get this done before the election and this will be a major talking point by the liberal media and congress and they will try every option to fight it.

Trump has been licking his lips to get this new SCOTUS. Only problem is the RINOs will vote against it and maybe some other republican senators. Everyone needs to tread carefully with an upcoming election. Will those up for re-election lose or gain votes depending how they vote? Certainly interesting. But trump has 120ish days to get this pushed through. Probably will be Amy Barrett

This is going to make Kavanaugh's confirmation look like rainbows and unicorns.

McConnell

“President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate"

We have only ever had two Supreme Court vacancies closer to Election Day than we have now. The average confirmation process since the Harry Truman administration lasted 50 days ... just 46 days until Election Day, 2020.

Both times, the incumbent president won reelection and nominated a replacement shortly after Election Day.

Historical comparisons are a little different given the prevalence of absentee/early voting now. North Carolina's sent out absentee ballots, Minnesota's in-person early voting started today, etc. We're not just "close to Election Day" ... We're actually in the process of voting.

And everybody crushing him saying he already knew the news and he was acting fake, actually happy.

He gets crucified for everything.

Just watch. All my liberal girlfriends in CA have all these post about Ginzberg and how important it is to have women in high positions, etc and thanking her which is great.

But what they really mean is liberal women.

Trump may select a women and all these same people will be bashing the new justice because she is a conservative. It won't matter that it is a women being selected.

i don't like to speak ill of the dead but she was self centered, closed minded and stubborn to a fault.

You can't have a woman who was pushing 90, always sick / half dead making life-changing decisions ... that job requires people at the top of their game. We have no idea if she was making smart / serious decisions for our country. She should have stepped down years ago.

The lifetime appointments to a judicial position needs to go away. It made sense when the country was founded and the average life expectancy was considerably lower, but now it is just ridiculous.

I also don't know what to think of her last wish. If true she wasn't too bright. She doesn't have the right to suggest when a replacement takes her place. She doesn't own that seat, she merely occupied it.

Might as well feed the media with another political battle to close out 2020.

Leftist activists published McConnell’s home address online, planning huge protests.

Shit is going to get wild. Time for another Rittenhouse (or several) to emerge.

Trump to announce Saturday. Both Gardner and Romney on board to nominate. Only ones who won't are Murkowski and Collins, which doesn't matter, it's at 51 votes.

In 2016 both Ginzberg and Biden said the job of the President is to nominate even in and election year. Case closed.

" That's their job. There is nothing in the constitution that says the President stops being president in his last year"

Ginzberg in 2016 in response to Obama wanting to nominate.

Both sides are hypocritical in this case, but the way the left has treated Trump, get it done! They deserve it.

As expected, President Trump intends to choose Amy Coney Barrett to be the new Supreme Court justice, multiple senior GOP sources with knowledge of the process say.
