Dem Heads would Explode....2020 SCOTUS

McConnell Open to the Possibility of Filling Supreme Court Vacancy in 2020


BY: Andrew Kugle
October 7, 2018 12:23 pm

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) said on Sunday that he was open to the possibility of filling a vacancy in the Supreme Court in 2020.

"Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace asked McConnell about his decision to block former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland because it was a presidential election year, specifically asking if he would do the same thing if a vacancy opened on the high court in 2020.

"When you blocked Merrick Garland's nomination from President Obama, you basically said that we don't do this in a presidential election year and that we wait until the election and then whoever the people choose, they get to pick the Supreme Court nominee. But what you just said now, is it's a question of whether or not the party in control of the Senate is different than the president. The question I guess I'm getting to is, if Donald Trump were to name somebody in the final year of his first term in 2020, are you saying that you would go ahead with that nomination?" Wallace asked.

"I understand your question. And what I told you is what the history of the Senate has been. You have to go back to 1880 to find the last time a vacancy created in a presidential election year on the Supreme Court was confirmed by a Senate of a different party than the president," McConnell responded.

You seem to be hinting that you have an answer so how about I take it up with you? Can't wait to hear your answer.

The answer is in the Constitution, where the President is given the authority to select the Supreme Court justices.

Quote:
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

There's nothing in there about "except during the final year of any 4 year term, when the opposition holds the Senate". So, as I said, take it up with the founders.

Obama selected him. Go back and read it again and you'll have a hard time finding authority for the President to dictate a Senate schedule. Get back to me if you come up with a better argument.

Stop trying to normalize the Senate refusing to even hold a hearing purely because of politics.

My argument's fine. You're arguing an inanity, and your bringing up Obama specifically indicates that you might have misunderstood what I posted. As I said, take it up with the founding fathers. Hell, the first actual hearing of a nominee didn't happen until Grant's presidency.

The constitution gives the Senate the power to make their own rules and in the case of SCOTUS appointments, to withhold consent, which is what they did. If you want to change that, propose an amendment.

Absolutely not! R's had control of the Senate. They should of brought it up for a vote, and sent him packing. As I understand it, they don't really need any reason to say no, just give him a straight ticket no like the Dems just did Kavanaugh (excluding the W.Virginia Senator). That way, he got his vote.

Sure, the Dems would of still pissed and moaned, but you would of satisfied the likes of me who generally vote with your party. But, like I said, it's water under the bridge now, and I definitely am very happy with the guy currently holding that seat.
