First, let us back up to Saturday, when Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsey Graham pulled up some video from January 2019 and said that heâs âdead set on confirmingâ President Trumpâs nominee to fill the seat vacated by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
I stand by what I said in Jan. 2019: Harry Reid & Chuck Schumer changed Senate rules to try and stack the courts for Obama. Now it’s coming back to haunt them as I predicted. I’m dead set on confirming @realDonaldTrumpâs nominee. If you stand with me: https://t.co/MYF6qgyjdI pic.twitter.com/lsejlSs0QQ

That was good to hear, and on Monday, Graham sent a letter to his Democratic colleagues on the Judiciary Committee telling them that he now has a different view of the judicial confirmation process after seeing how Brett Kavanaugh was treated during his confirmation hearings.

âCompare the treatment of Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Brett Kavanaugh to that of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan, and itâs clear that there is already one set of rules for a Republican president and one set of rules for a Democrat president,â he writes.

This is the last chance for republicans to show theyâre worth a damn and willing to fight for their country. Theyâve been weak for too long letting dems get away with anything and everything. pic.twitter.com/pBu3URfW28

Iâm pretty sure the Dems will print that letter so they can rip it up like Pelosi did.

Itâs sad that the lap dog media @CNN @MSNBC @CBSNews wonât call Democrats out for their treatment of judicial nominees over the years, and that itâs the #POTUS job to appoint. Remember #Obama, elections have consequences.

Good to have Lindsey Graham 2.0 back at such a crucial time.
âHeâs rightâ! Trump gives odds on Dems moving forward with a SCOTUS nomination if the roles were reversed https://t.co/n7c6EQC3UN
