Emanuel: ‘Republicans Will Regret’ Confirming Barrett

October 29, 2020

Wednesday on ABC’s liberal gabfest The View, former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said ” that Republicans would “regret” confirming  Amy Coney Barrett as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Asked if Republicans will regret their confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the newest Supreme Court, Emanuel replied, “Yes. Well, let me say I do think the Republicans will regret this. Not only what they did here, but what they did to Merrick Garland at the end of 2016. They’ve twice now bent the rules and cracked them and broken them to basically seize power of the Supreme Court and politicized the Supreme Court. I think it’s going to lead, in my own view, assuming the election turns out how I think where Joe Biden will get elected, and the Democrats most likely take the Senate, it will bring a change to the filibuster rule.  I think it will help the Senate because it will make it a legislative body again rather than a body of obstruction…

“I do think the Republicans made a mistake. I also think Amy Coney Barrett made a mistake. She should not have gone to the White House given we have a potential contested election. I think it actually damaged her independence and her sense of being above politics like the court. I think it was a bad thing, and you notice the contrast only Thomas went, and none of the other justices went. I think that actually showed a lack of self-awareness of what’s going on by her early on,” he continued.

What hypocritical, sore losers. If the shoe had been on the other foot, the Democrats would not have hesitated to fill the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s seat with another anti-Constitution Progressive activist.
