GOP Senator Caves – Will NOT Vote For Ruth Ginsburg’s Replacement Until After Election

, , 16 Comments

Once again, another Republican in the United States Senate has decided to betray the American people by refusing to vote for a replacement for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Sen. Lisa Murkowski has just become the second Republican in the United States Senate to confirm that she will NOT vote for Ginsburg’s replacement until after the 2020 election is over.

Murkowski Doesn’t Want Trump Picking A Nominee

In a statement released to the public, Murkowski claims that the reason she won’t vote for a replacement on the Supreme Court is because she didn’t want the Justice replaced early in 2016 after the death of Justice Scalia:

“For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election. Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed. I did not support taking up a nomination eight months before the 2016 election to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Justice Scalia.”

And she went on, saying that because she made weird decisions back in 2016, she wants to be weird again today:

“We are now even closer to the 2020 election – less than two months out – and I believe the same standard must apply.”

Absolutely Shameful

The fact that Republicans are failing to push a Supreme Court nominee through is an absolute disgrace. They’re so worried about seeming radical that they are literally putting America’s justice system on the line.

Real Republicans like Tom Cotton and President Donald Trump are actually doing their best to fill the Supreme Court. Senator Cotton released a statement recently confirming that he is moving forward “without delay,” saying:

“The Senate will exercise our constitutional duty,’ he said. ‘We will move forward without delay.”

    MURKOWSKI knows she is putting ALL of America for DECADES in jeopardy but does not care about America. I hope her decline votes her our of Senate. At least with Democrats we know where we stand . With Murkowski and Collins all we know is they do NOT have the INTELLECT to make a decision for the people of America. They are too selfish to be in Congress. Go home girls.

    Lady get off your high horse and do your job!!! The President has the reason right and responsibility to elect a replacement for Supreme Court!!! The President and the Senate are of the same party and that gives him the right!!! The American people elected him for this and if you keep refusing and voting against Trump then come Nov you might be out of a job!!! Do what Americans want and quit being an azzhole RINO!!!

    Senator Murkowski read the Constitution please. It is your duty to do so. The President has the city to nominate at any time a Justice dies to nominate someone to the Bench for the good of the country. Read it! It doesn’t say anywhere that a sitting President can’t nominate a Justice to the Bench in an election year or close to a general election year.

    I hope MURKOWSKI is run out of office. She is a disgrace to the GOP. Her and her two faced cronies need to resign and just go back to their districts and see if they can fix them alone without help from our president. Shame, shame, shame!!!!

    I agree with all of the above. I just could not add or say it any better, She and her cronies are such a disgrace and an embarrassment to her state. Get her and Susan Collins out of there. We can’t stand the sight of either one of them.
