Lets not forget that Kamala Harris sits on the Judiciary Committee........

GOP facing nightmare Ginsburg replacement hearings with Kamala Harris grilling Trump nominee: Dem strategist

It is not yet clear whether Republicans have locked down the votes to force through a Supreme Court confirmation in the remaining time before the 2020 election, or the lame duck session afterward, although President Donald Trump and GOP leaders have signaled their intent to try to do so.

However, on CNN Saturday, former Hillary Clinton strategist Jess McIntosh outlined one obstacle for Republicans: vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.

“Kamala Harris sits on the Judiciary Committee,” said anchor Anderson Cooper. “Potentially she could be questioning a nominee as a vice presidential pick?”

“And she is very, very good at that,” said McIntosh. “I would like folks to remember what Kamala Harris, on the Judiciary Committee, was capable of doing with, say, Jeff Sessions. I don’t think that these hearings are going to go the way that Republicans are hoping that they will. I think they are going to face incredibly tough questions.”

“We are talking about a president who has been impeached, a president who did not win the popular vote, and a president who has presided over the deaths of 200,000 Americans,” added McIntosh. “I don’t think many Americans want that man deciding what is going to set policy for the next generation.”

1. this is brilliant. I didnt even think about it

gop may not hold hearing until after the election. The free airtime Kamala would get right before election is gonna drive them crazy. Is it constitutionally required to have hearings at all? Can rethugs just vote in a justice with zero hearings? If it’s just a senate rule, mcturtle can change it in no time. What is the constitutional procedure for confirming a SC justice?
