The fight to confirm Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s successor could determine the trajectory of the Supreme Court for a generation as well as the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election.
Democrats and Republicans recognize the stakes in this fight are that high.
And now Sean Hannity broke one bombshell story about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s successor.
After Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that President Trump’s nominee would receive a vote.
But having a vote and delivering the votes necessary for confirmation are two different things.
Pro-abortion RINOs Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins declared they would oppose any nominee before the election.
Republicans hold 53 seats in the Senate, and with Collins and Murkowski’s “no” votes,McConnell had little margin for error.
With five other vulnerable Republicans running in swing states and RINO traitor Mitt Romney lurking in the shadows, many on the left held out hope of peeling off two more spineless Republicans and defeating President Trump’s nominee.
On Sean Hannity’s Fox News program, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham dashed those hopes by breaking the news that Republicans had the votes necessary to confirm President Trump’s nominee before the November 3 election.
“We’ve got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election. We’re going to move forward in the committee. We’re going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election. That’s the constitutional process,” Graham began.
Democrats tried to call Graham a hypocrite because in 2016, Graham said if a Republican President faced a Supreme Court vacancy in an election year, he would block that nomination as well.
But Graham explained the Democrats’ dirty pool during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
“After Kavanaugh, everything changed with me. They’re not going to intimidate me, Mitch McConnell or anybody else. … The nominee is going to be supported by every Republican in the Judiciary Committee, and we’ve got the votes to confirm the judge — the justice on the floor of the Senate before the election. And that’s what’s coming,” Graham concluded.
During the Kavanaugh hearings, Democrats seized on women coming out of the woodwork to lob false allegations of sexual assault and gang rape against Kavanaugh.
Democrats claimed Kavanaugh spoke in secret code in his high school yearbook to describe a culture of sexual predatory behavior and alcoholism.
It was a farce and coordinated smear job with the fake news media to try and destroy Kavanaugh’s nomination.
Democrats ran similar hatchet jobs against Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas during their confirmation hearings.
But the Kavanaugh debacle was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Republicans know Democrats don’t care about norms.
The GOP knows they have the votes and the constitutional authority to fill Ginsburg’s seat.
And they intend to do so.
