    The Republicans refused to consider a Supreme Court Judge in March of presidential election, their hypocrisy is astounding.

    The dems are saying that she said " until a NEW president is elected. Ie not Trump. 

    I do not believe that the great woman said that- not for a second.

    It is one big lie and totally disgusting.

    She should be both nominated and confirmed before the election.

    @IOM: Can you show me the word "immediately" in the appointments clause?

    "... and [the President] shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments."

    That was the 2016 GOP rule.

    Republicans in 2020: "Our own rule means nothing to us."

    Also Republicans in 2020: "Vote for us."

    Good luck with that.

    No. The Constitution mandates the President to appoint a replacement immediately.
