In his first extended remarks following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Joe Biden accused Republicans who would “jam this nomination through” of hypocrisy, while seeking to reason with other GOP senators, Politico reports.
Said Biden: “Please follow your conscience. Don’t vote to confirm anyone nominated under the circumstances President Trump and Senator McConnell have created. Don’t go there. Uphold your constitutional duty, your conscience, let the people speak. Cool the flames that have been engulfing our country. We can’t ignore the cherished system of checks and balances.”
