Chuck Schumer Calls For Blocking SCOTUS Vacancy “Until We Have a New President”

This is actually unprecedented.

Published

Just hours after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is saying that the vacancy left behind shouldn’t be filled by President Trump- be it in his second term as President or otherwise.

Trump wouldn’t be a “new President” if he were to secure a second term in office in the November election, making it seem as if Schumer would work to obstruct the confirmation of his potential SCOTUS pick no matter what.

Schumer also sent his tweet refusing to work on the confirmation of a new justice before he even formally mourned Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s death. The tweet on the vacancy was sent eight minutes before he memorialized the judicial progressive, who died Friday afternoon of complications from cancer.

Trying to block a Supreme Court confirmation process on the basis of the President making the selection is truly unprecedented, as opposed to delaying a pick on the basis of a pending presidential election. Republicans may try to confirm a new Supreme Court justice before the November election, if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can convince liberal-leaning Republicans such as Mitt Romney and Susan Collins to get on board.

Schumer is hoping for a Joe Biden victory and replacing RBG with another progressive. If he were to try to permanently block new SCOTUS picks throughout the duration of Trump’s potential second term in office, he will likely face considerable push-back for unprecedented greed for power.

After a lengthy obstructionist attempt to delay the confirmation, Democrats proved unable to stop a floor vote on Barrett’s confirmation on Monday night. Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attempted a last minute filibuster in a race against time- claiming the eventual confirmation of Barrett represented “one of the darkest days in the history of the Senate,” but Mitch McConnell ultimately arranged a vote.

Josh Hawley had earlier hailed the confirmation of a justice with a strong pro-life track record.

The vote to confirm Barrett as a SCOTUS Justice passed by a count of 52-48, with Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski voting in favor of Barrett’s confirmation. Maine’s Susan Collins was the only Republican senator to vote against Barrett’s confirmation, refusing to budge on her stance that the next President should appoint Ginsburg’s replacement.

Judge Barrett is expected to be sworn in as an Associate Justice by Justice Clarence Thomas at the White House on Monday night.
