Murkowski & Romney: No SJC Confirmation Until After Inauguration Day

After Ruth Bader Ginsberg's passing, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney say they won't confirm a Supreme Court Justice until after Inauguration Day.

In anticipation of Ruth Bader Ginsberg's passing, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney put out statements earlier today, that they won't confirm a Supreme Court Justice until after Inauguration Day.

On Twitter, Bryan Tyler Cohen reports:

Mitt Romney's office reports that Mitt Romney has committed to not confirming a Supreme Court nominee until after Inauguration Day 2021. #Mittrevenge #utpol

Today's death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg represents a devastating loss for Americans who saw the 87-year-old as an icon of women's rights and civil rights. According to The Atlantic: RGB

As a bulwark protecting abortion rights and a wide range of other progressive ideals on a conservative Supreme Court. The Brooklyn-born jurist became one of the nation's foremost advocates against gender discrimination as a lawyer for the ACLU, decades before President Bill Clinton appointed her to be the second woman to sit on the high court.

Remember this: RGB fought until the last day of her life. We owe it to her to put up a fight and not let McConnell get away with another SC Justice under Trump.

5. The report about Romney was disputed by his communications director

Unless he's since offered an actual statement, the "commitment" is still just a rumor from a former Utah state senator.

9. Murkowski, Grassley before and now Collins

have pledged to not confirm until after the election. Romney would be the key vote-- and there is contradictory information from his people.
Graham has already changed his mind apparently and will vote.

12. Will they wait for all the votes to be counted, though?

I'm guessing Dump will immediately claim victory and they'll go ahead and vote before we have a confirmed winner. Repugs are not to be trusted.
