Fox News: David Bossie: Senate Republicans should confirm Trump’s Supreme Court nominee by Election Day

Trump and Senate Republicans have a responsibility to carry out the duty they were entrusted with by the American people

One of the most important duties of the president of the United States is to nominate federal judges to defend the Constitution and faithfully interpret America’s laws as intended.

In 2016 Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away, leaving an empty seat that needed to be filled. This void left by the extraordinary Justice Scalia was so big that it became a major factor in the presidential race between then-candidate Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

President Barack Obama nominated Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., refused to move the nomination because Obama was at the end of his second term — a lame duck until the next president took office.

Republicans had taken control of the Senate after the 2014 midterm elections. Americans elected a Republican majority to keep a check on the Democratic president, and that’s exactly what happened. As McConnell said in a statement last week: “Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.”
