He is trying to convince the public of one insane thing.
But all of his facts are false.
Now, Joe Biden’s new attack on Amy Coney Barrett has left Americans stunned.
In the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s tragic passing, nothing has been more talked about than Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett as the next SCOTUS.
Republicans are doing their best to move forward with establishing her as the next Supreme Court Justice, while Democrats are desperately trying to stop them in their tracks.
First, Democrats tried to convince the public that Ginsburg’s “dying wish” was for the Supreme Court to delay choosing a new Justice until after the election.
They not only insulted Ginsburg’s memory with this false statement, they also insulted voters by attempting to use their sympathy and grief over Ginsburg’s passing to accomplish political goals.
Now it appears they have changed tactics.
Joe Biden has made the latest attack on Barrett and Republicans by trying to convince Americans that the efforts to confirm Barrett to the Supreme Court are “unconstitutional.”
The Washington Examiner released Biden’s remarks against Barrett’s confirmation.
“The only court-packing is going on right now. It’s going on with the Republicans. It’s not constitutional what they’re doing. We should be focused on what’s happening right now,” Biden claimed.
The topic of packing the court is a hot one, with Biden stalling on whether or not he will go through with it if elected.
But Biden believes confirming Barrett is unconstitutional because some votes for the 2020 election have already been cast.
Voters have started getting their votes in early due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Firstly, a sitting President does not lose Presidential powers the second votes are cast.
Trump remains in control of the Presidency until January 20, 2021 when he is reinstated or Biden himself is sworn into office, so it’s well within his duties as President to confirm a new Justice before the election.
Secondly, the Senate themselves have a constitutional duty to elect a new Justice to the Supreme Court.
As Rick Moran of PJMedia explained:
“The Senate has a constitutional requirement of confirming a Supreme Court Justice nominated by a sitting president before that justice can sit. They have some options about when that nomination can be acted upon, as they exercised in 2016 by refusing to take up the Merrick Garland nomination. But the Senate has legally decided to vote to confirm Amy Coney Barrett now.”
