The fight to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg is for all the marbles.
Its outcome could decide the Presidential Election and the future of the court.
But now it’s all in doubt because this RINO traitor in the Senate just stabbed Trump in the back on the Supreme Court.
Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski is the Queen RINO in the United States Senate.
The pro-abortion Murkowski did not support Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation because Murkowski feared Kavanaugh would provide the fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.
As soon as Justice Ginsburg passed away and Americans paid their respects publicly the conversation immediately shifted to if President Trump and the Republican Senate could confirm a replacement.
There is zero chance any Democrat will vote for Ginsburg’s replacement.
That means President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can only afford to lose three Republicans out of the 53 member conference and still win confirmation for the President’s nominee because Vice President Mike Pence can cast the tie breaking 51st vote.
Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski immediately came out with a statement announcing her opposition to filling the open seat on the Supreme Court before the election.
“For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election,” Murkowski declared. “Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed.”
Murkowski falsely compared the situation in 2020 to the circumstances in 2016 when the Republican Senate did not take up President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to replace Antonin Scalia.
“I did not support taking up a nomination eight months before the 2016 election to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Justice [Antonin] Scalia,” Murkowski continued. “We are now even closer to the 2020 election, less than two months out, and I believe the same standard must apply.”
Murkowski is not supporting any nominee Trump puts forward under any circumstances.
Even if Trump wins the election Murkowski will oppose the nominee if the vote is held after November 3.
Murkowski is a pro-abortion fanatic and preserving Roe v. Wade is her number one goal in any Supreme Court fight.
Replacing Ginsburg gives conservatives a chance to build a six to three majority on the court for Republican appointed justices.
Five sold conservatives votes on the bench renders Chief Justice John Roberts leftward drift irrelevant.
This would expand the number of cases the court can take up.
In this past term it was reported that the conservative justices did not want to take up cases that could strike down gun control laws because the other four conservative justices knew they could not count on Roberts’ vote.
That could all change if President Trump replaces Ginsburg with a strong conservative justice.
And that is why Lisa Murkowski is fighting so hard to thwart the President’s nominee.
