Hillary Clinton: Republicans ‘Made This New Precedent’ On SCOTUS Confirmation

“The system has been broken for quite a while,” said Hillary Clinton on “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “But clearly, the decision that Mitch McConnell made back in 2016 in the midst of that presidential election, but at a much earlier time when Justice Scalia unexpectedly passed away, is what should be the standard.”

“Now they talk about, well, you know, we had other standards before,” continued Clinton. “Well, they made a new precedent. And that new precedent, which they all defended incredibly passionately, is to wait for the next president, whoever that is, to make the nomination.”

“But as you clearly heard, that is not what they are intending. And it’s another blow to our institutions. You know, what’s happening in our country is incredibly dangerous. Our institutions are being basically undermined by the lust for power. Power for personal gain in the case of the president or power for institutional gain in the case of Mitch McConnell, at the cost of ensuring that our institutions withstand whatever the political winds might be. But they made this decision back in 2016 and they should be held accountable for it.”
