Dem Senator Accuses McConnell and Trump of ‘Stealing’ Supreme Court Seats

Democrat Senator Ed Markey told reporters on Wednesday that former President Trump and Senator Mitch McConnell “stole” two Supreme Court seats, referring to Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Neil Gorsuch.

Fox News reports:

“Let’s be clear, Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell pulled off one of the greatest heists in the history of the United States,” he said to applause. “Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell stole two Supreme Court seats from the American people.”

“First they created a precedent out of thin air claiming that there could be no Supreme Court confirmations during a presidential year,” Markey said Wednesday. “Then just days before the 2020 presidential election, they broke their own rule … in order to confirm Amy Coney Barrett.”

Barrett was nominated by Trump in September 2020, just one week after the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Despite previous actions taken by the GOP to block a Supreme Court appointment during an election year, she was confirmed to the high court one week before the 2020 presidential election.

This isn’t the first time Democrats have attempted to claim Supreme Court seats were “stolen” from them. In retaliation, some Democrats have pushed to pack the Supreme Court, a term for expanding the number of justices for political purposes but so far their efforts have gone nowhere.

President Biden formed a bipartisan committee to explore the possibility of packing the Court but the committee has already recommended against the notion.

Ed Markey, one of the things I liked best about moving from Massachusetts to Florida was no longer having to hear or read from you. You are an old , entrenched liberal and I remained an independent and a Yankees fan despite living in your state for far too long

And again Dems want it both ways! LOL Their argument only justifies the “stealing” of one house seat. Had McConnell backed down in 2016, we would have Merrick Garland on the court (As AG, can you see why that would have been a problem). But then there would have been no objection to the nomination of Amy Barrett. Or reverse it and say the 2016 one went through, but Barrett;s was blocked. Dems being wildly inconsistent and applying different standards for each would have resulted in the Dems stealing a seat by using different standards. But then again, Dems are always better at stealing elections.

Thank God we dodged the bullet called Merrick Garland! Can you imagine this radical dolt on SCOTUS?! BTW… Trump wasn’t even president when McConnell refused to hold Senate hearings for Garland. McConnell is far more savvy than he appears, unlike Markey, who’s a total idiot.

Ed Markey, You are a moron. For one, they did not “create a precedent” they did what was already allowed. We can all see how big of a mistake Merrick Garland would have been! He is almost as bad as Biden!! The justices that were put in place are extremely qualified unlike the last couple of justices that the Democrats put in and tried to put in. Now we just need to get to this next election with the least amount of damage from all the liberal Democrats!

We better get started now. Just read where in a county in Virginia the Election officers changed a law that required the last four numbers of your SS number on the mail in envelope. They decided it was not necessary. Real cute. You can mail in 10 unidentified envelopes and run them through the vote counter as many times as you please. That is how the Zombie in the White House won.

I guess Senator Markey needs to tell the police, someone stole “his” Supreme Court seats. It just goes to prove that the stupid people in Congress are the rule, but to date I haven’t found the exception that proves the rule.

Ed Markey is another “Do Nothing Democrat” who is looking to get his name in the paper. In the past, the Bills he has sponsored are pathetic wastes of time and energy. He is good at renaming buildings or sponsoring things like a new traffic light or a new public restroom. He is a good example of a USELESS politician. Massachusetts should be embarrassed for sending Lizzy Warren & Eddie Markey to the U.S. Senate.

Face the facts, as the conservatives are doing right now, “To the victor belong the spoils”
The salient FACT, not mentioned, is confirmation. Without Senate confirmation, nomination is useless. Since the republicans controlled the Senate, a nomination by Obama would go nowhere (as was demonstrated). Of course, as is currently being demonstrated, had the shoe been on the other foot, the SAME tactic would have been used (gleefully).

They did not break any rules. The Republicans were in control of the Senate when Scalia died (which was a strange incident as it is) It was the last year of Obama’s presidency. He nominated Merrick Garland for the court. McConnell did not bring his nomination up for a vote. It didn’t matter really, because he would not have been confirmed (and as we have seen due to his appointment as AG, that he is not in the least competent, i.e. his desire to sick the FBI on parents for protesting to school boards about CRT, etc.) When Trump was President three vacancies occurred on the court. Trump had the majority in the Senate, so all three were confirmed. And thank heavens for that. Can you imagine if this administration also had the Supreme Court? They are the only thing standing in the way of this country’s complete destruction.
