Trump to GOP: We are obliged to fill Ginsburg's vacant Supreme Court seat 'without delay'.
“The PGOP placed us in a position to make decisions and important to the people who elected us so proudly, the most important of which has long been the selection of judges of the United States Supreme Court. We have this responsibility, without delay!” Trump wrote Twitter.
Ginsberg’s death – and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Subsequent statement On Friday that “Trump’s nominee will get a vote on the floor of the United States Senate” – less than two months before election day on November 3, the political battle over the future of the court begins. The vacancy on the bench is seen by many as an opportunity for a one-pay-per-pay generation to move the court structure to a more impressive 3-3 majority by splitting the existing five serv judges and four liberal judges.
CNN reported earlier According to a source close to the president, the president was “liberated” to be nominated for a change of liberal justice just the day before Ginsberg’s death, and a source close to the president said the prospect of choosing his successor weighs heavily on his mind.

The source told CNN that Trump has specifically said he would prefer to choose Federal Appeals Judge Amy Connie Barrett, a favorite among religiously-minded people, but doubted he would gain the support of the U.S. Senate.

Including Barrett Trump List In an effort to galvanize their base, it introduced 20 potential nominees earlier this month.

In a message to GOP senators on Friday, McConnell did not suggest a timeline for considering the nomination, but made it clear that he believes there is enough time to take a nomination this year. While nominees typically take two to three months to process, McConnell, who controls a Senate majority, can speed up the process.

The Conservatives are pushing McConnell behind the scenes to consider moving forward to fill the vacancy before the November election – by splitting the potential conference into which timeline is best.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Fox News on Friday that he believes Trump should be nominated as a successor in court next week.

Ultimately, it will be McConnell’s decision and in the coming days it will make a decision not to take without the input of its members.

Speaking to reporters Saturday morning, White House Press Secretary Kyle McKinney was asked by CNN’s Joe Jones if President McConnell or other Senate Republicans are in contact on the next step.

“I’m not aware of that,” he said in response, adding that “right now, President Justice Ruth Bader is focused on honoring Ginsberg’s legacy.”

He asked Democratic presidential candidate John Biden to release a list of potential Supreme Court nominees so voters know where they are.

Ahead of the news of Ginsberg’s death, Biden told reporters on Friday that he did not think he would announce the names of potential Supreme Court candidates before the election.

Trump has tried to force his 2020 rival to release the same list, Saying That Biden has “refused” to do so “probably because he knows the names are so outstanding that they can never face public scrutiny or gain acceptance.”

The story has been updated with additional developments on Saturday.
