“Now that the 2020 election has concluded, it is clear that the American people have overwhelmingly rejected a second term for President Trump,” Feinstein began, before noting that Biden and his running mate, Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) “are already implementing their transition plan.”
Although the presidential election is currently being contested in several lawsuits by the Trump campaign, which alleges voting irregularities and fraud, Feinstein pointed out that “the Biden-Harris ticket is on track to receive 306 electoral votes, and has already garnered the votes of more than 77 million Americans.”
“In light of that,” she wrote, “it is imperative that the Judiciary Committee cease to process judicial nominees and allow President-Elect Biden the opportunity to appoint judges following his inauguration on January 20, 2021.”
Nice try Diane!
Joe doesn’t get to appoint any judges until he gets the keys to the White House.
Sooo, if Clinton had won in 2016, McConnell would have allowed a vote on Garland at the end of Obama’s term? Because he wanted America to speak first. No vote till they spoke. America did speak this time in 2020 and have rejected the current president. Soo…
No, but probably not. During the lame duck Trump period. The people have spoken. They want a different President to nominate the next SCOTUS Justice. And I fully expect McConnell to respect that. Barring some tragedy of course.
