Lindsey Graham just threw down the gauntlet in a Fox News interview with Chris Wallace with a very accurate prediction concerning Ruth Ginsburg’s replacement and Chuck Schumer is furious.
Lindsey issued a forceful threat to Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Democrats, essentially ending any dream Trump may nominate a moderate should Ginsburg need replacing.
“Here’s what will happen if there’s a vacancy — there will be a lot of pushback from the left. But my Democrat colleagues felt, when they were in charge, we should confirm judges by a majority vote,” Lindsey started.
“They changed the rules to accommodate President Obama, they tried to stack the court, they never thought [Hillary Clinton] would lose.”
“I will urge the president to nominate a qualified conservative. Hopefully that person will get through and I expect it to be along party lines. And this is what happens when you change the rules. This is come back to bite ’em, I predicted it would and we’ll see.”
Correct. All sane observers told the Democrats that move would backfire and here we are.
“I’m going to be hellbent to replace [with] a conservative whoever steps down for whatever reason.”
“They should have thought of that before they changed the rules. They tried to destroy conservative judges, I voted for [Sonia Sotomayor] and [Elena Kagan] understanding what I was getting.”
“I am dead set on making sure it’s a conservative nominee. Elections have consequences. The rules of the Senate were changed, not by me! By them! And [Republicans] had to [change the rules] on the Supreme Court because they would not give us anybody and Kavanaugh was a fine man. They tried to destroy him.”
We don’t need one Democrat to replace a liberal justice and the reason that’s the case is because what [former Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid did.”
Correct and with that Chuck Schumer became aware he will lose this fight as soon as it happens – which could be sooner than anyone thinks.
