Susan Collins Says Republicans Should Wait to Vote on Supreme Court Replacement Until after Election
Senator Susan Collins (R., Maine) said Saturday she believes Republicans should hold off on voting to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg until after the 2020 elections.
An envelope containing ricin and addressed to President Trump was intercepted in White House mail earlier this week, according to reports.
Mitch McConnell had no constitutional obligation to take up Obama’s Garland nomination in 2016 and has no obligation to wait for 2021 to vote on the next appointment.
The timing of Justice Ginsburg’s replacement is strictly a matter of political calculation.
“We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us,” the president said.
