South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, signs up with Shannon Bream with reaction to the last night of the 2020 Republican Politician National Convention.Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., ripped Democrats ‘objections to President Trump signaling he will summarily pick a replacement for late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.Ginsburg, who died Friday at age 87, had been a liberal-progressive stalwart of the court given that being chosen by President Clinton in 1993. Graham took to Twitter on Sunday to knock his opposition, writing that”being lectured by Democrats about how to deal with judicial nominations is like an arsonist encouraging the fire department. “He implicated Democrats of formerly attempting to”stack the court [s] at the circuit court level
, and advised them how they trashed Trump’s previous court nominee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “[ T] hello selected to try to damage Brett Kavanaugh’s life to keep the Supreme Court seat open,”he stated, keeping in mind how
the jurist was struck with accusations of sexual misconduct and lectured throughout questioning by a number of Democrats on Graham’s committee.”You enjoy what you sow,”said Graham.He also tweeted a video of part of a look on”Fox News Sunday “from earlier in 2015, in which he
told anchor Chris Wallace that Senate Minority
Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and former Senate Bulk Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., never thought it would be Trump who would be able to fill court jobs at the rate he has.”My Democratic associates felt that when they were in charge, we should validate judges by a majority vote, they changed the rules to accommodate President Obama, they attempted to stack the court,”he stated.”They never ever thought [Hillary] Clinton would lose, so what you’re going to have is Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer’s desire to take the court on their Democratic watches come back to haunt them.
“Graham captioned the video by remarking that he stands by those 2019 remarks.He implicated Reid and Schumer of”dealing out the minority [party] in the Senate, and thinking they would never have envisioned themselves as
the minority party they themselves sought to silence.Graham has actually faced extreme criticism for a remark he made in 2016 when he told Democrats to “utilize my words against me”if a Supreme Court vacancy need to occur throughout an election year of a Republican president. Graham was speaking at a time when Republicans were obstructing President Obama’s efforts to have Judge Merrick Garland replace the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.
