I could hear Democrats wailing in my neighborhood last night.
It was right around the time Senator Lindsey Graham confirmed on “Hannity” that Republicans will be able to get a new Supreme Court Nominee approved to fill the seat of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg BEFORE the November 3rd Federal Elections.
From Fox News:
Senate Republicans have enough votes to confirm a replacement for late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the Nov. 3 election, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told “Hannity” Monday.
“It’s pretty obvious that if they [Democrats] want an outcome, they’ll just destroy anybody’s life to keep the seats open,” Graham told host Sean Hannity.
“They said they tried to destroy Brett Kavanaugh so they could fill the seat — they were dumb enough to say that,” Graham added. “I’ve seen this movie before. It’s not going to work, it didn’t work with Kavanaugh.
“We’ve got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election. We’re going to move forward in the committee, we’re going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election. Now, that’s the constitutional process.”
Controversy has swirled around this process, but Graham said the unjust, disgusting treatment of then nominee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, made the decision to move forward obvious for him.
Cue the Totalitarian threats from the Left.
On Monday, Graham told Sean Hannity that after Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, "everything changed with me." During Kavanaugh's contentious confirmation hearings, a woman testified that he had sexually assaulted her while they were in high school. Kavanaugh denied the allegation.
Democrats, meanwhile, have called for the process to be halted. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on a call with Democrats "our number one goal must be to communicate the stakes of this Supreme Court fight to the American people," according to a source on the call.
"Let me be clear: If Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans move forward with this, then nothing is off the table for next year," Schumer said. "Nothing is off the table."
Enjoy the show snowflakes.
