Ginsburg Told Senate To Replace Scalia Before Election In 2016

The late Ruth Bader Ginsburg made comments in 2016 that contradicted her deathbed plea. Ginsburg states, “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being the president in his last year.” Ginsburg urged the Senate to “do their job” and replace Scalia before the upcoming 2016 election.

Ginsburg, 87, who passed due to pancreatic cancer Friday, reportedly told her granddaughter that her “most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell refused to consider Merrick Garland before the election in 2016 to fill the vacancy left by Scalia.

This comes as a surprise considering Democrats, lead by their Presidential Nominee Joe Biden, are adamant to delay filling the vacancy until after the 2020 election.
