Justice Ginsburg’s last wish was that her replacement be chosen by whoever wins the presidency this fall – for the good of the court and the nation.
But Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and state Republicans don’t care. They want Justice Ginsburg’s seat NOW – while there’s power to be grabbed – and now Republicans say the Judiciary Committee will vote next week on Trump’s nominee.
In 2016, after the passing of Justice Scalia, the Republicans stalled President Obama’s nominee for nearly a year, claiming the American people should have a say in who sits on the court.
Now, history is repeating itself – but the Republicans aren’t: We’re much closer to the election now than we were then, but Republicans are moving to grab a conservative majority on the court for decades to come, no matter what the voters decide.
The rules shouldn’t change just because of who’s in power. These Republican power-grabs are again doing serious damage to the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and the rule of law, and we can’t let them get away with it.
