Sen. Lindsey Graham Will Support President Trump in Any Effort To Fill Justice Ginsburg’s Seat


It’s time to get the ball rolling and Sen. Lindsey Graham knows that.

After the death of  Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the questions is still lurking will she be replaced before the election?

Well, Sen. Lindsey Graham put some of those questions to silence and openly stated he will back President Trump if he chooses to nominate a Justice before the election.

There’s 43 days until the election and there’s no doubt in my mind Trump will nominate a new Supreme Court Justice.

Here are the tweets that made liberals literally go crazy on Twitter.

CBS covered the story and shared these interesting details:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsey Graham said on Saturday that he supports filling the Supreme Court seat left vacant by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. He previously said he would not vote to confirm a justice to the court during an election year.

“I will support President @realDonaldTrump in any effort to move forward regarding the recent vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg,” Graham tweeted.

In 2016, the Republican-controlled Senate blocked Merrick Garland, President Obama’s nominee to fill the vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, from even receiving a hearing. Republicans, including Graham, argued that the Senate should not vote to confirm a justice to the Supreme Court during an election year.

If Trump nominates a Supreme Court Justice and it gets through the Senate there would be 6 Conservative Justices compared to the 3 liberal Justices.

Fox News came through with these details to add to the story:

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who once said he wouldn’t confirm a President Trump Supreme Court nominee in an election year, announced Saturday that he’s changed his mind on filling the high court vacancy.

Trump on Saturday said Republicans have an “obligation” to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death Friday of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “without delay.”

“I fully understand where President [Trump] is coming from,” Graham, R-S.C., tweeted in response.

Graham is the chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee and will lead confirmation hearings for Trump’s eventual Supreme Court nominee.

NATIONAL POLL: Do You Trust Fox News?

Graham backed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s move in 2016 to block Senate confirmation hearings on Merrick Garland in the last year of President Obama’s presidency. He told Democrats at the time to “use my words against me” if the Supreme Court vacancy should happen during an election year of a Republican president.

Graham is still facing backlash from liberals for his words in 2016.

He stated we shouldn’t replace a Supreme Court Justice before an election.

What the liberals are ignoring is what Obama said in 2016.
