Mitch McConnell, as the highest-ranking Republican elected official at the national level and consequently the party’s leader, takes no prisoners. He’s not a show horse, though. His modest clever approach is misinterpreted by some as timidity. Those folks would be wrong, as the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, which was made possible by McConnell’s obstruction of the Garland candidacy, shown.
“Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell warned Monday that if Republicans get control of the Senate in 2024, he will block a Supreme Court nominee from President Biden, just as he did after the death of late Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.”

In an interview with conservative radio personality Hugh Hewitt, McConnell, R-Ky., made the remark. The pledge comes after McConnell’s controversial decision last year to move forward with the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett less than two weeks before Election Day. Indeed, McConnell stated on February 22, 2016, that “the Senate has not filled a vacancy opening in an election year when there is divided government since 1888, nearly 130 years ago.” As a result, McConnell claims, Republicans were consistent when they approved Barrett after blocking the nomination of now-Attorney General Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court in 2016.”

“I think you have to go back to the 1880s to find the last time a vacancy was filled in the middle of a presidential election if you have a Senate of the opposite party of the president,” McConnell told Hugh Hewitt. “As a result, I believe it is quite unlikely. In fact, I don’t think either party would confirm a Supreme Court candidate in the middle of an election if it had power, if it were different from the president,” McConnell continued. “What made 2020 distinct was that we were from the same political party as the president.”
Chuck Schumer was not amused in 2020.
When Barrett was nominated, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, “Let the record show that tonight, the Republican Senate majority decided to thwart the will of the people and confirm a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court in the middle of a presidential election, after more than 60 million Americans have voted.”
“Let the record show that tonight, the Republican majority will make a mockery of its own stated principle — that the American people deserve a say in the selection of Supreme Court Justices — by completing the partisan theft of two Supreme Court seats using completely contradictory rationales,” he added.
Schumer was also mentioned. McConnell also addressed the Supreme Court’s new reorganization and the left’s call for Justice Stephen Breyer to resign. “You alluded to Justice Breyer. On Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, McConnell stated, “I do want to give him a shout-out.” “He agreed with Justice Ginsburg in 2019 that the Supreme Court should have nine members. And for that, I admire him. I believe that even the Supreme Court’s liberal justices have stated that court cramming is a bad idea.”
