McConnell is beyond contempt
To the Journal editor:
According to a recent news release (CNN, Feb.14, 2020) Mitch McConnell is quite prepared to try to fill a Supreme Court vacancy should one come up in 2020, an election year.
This, despite his arrogant denial to have even a hearing for President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, in 2016, an election year.
“The people should decide” he said. Oh, so McConnell’s contemptible interference with the traditional nominating process during an election year was justified by Mitch’s concern for “The People” and their “right” to decide who sits on the Supreme Court? A dubious concept at best and downright self-serving, political manipulation at worst!
Such unmitigated sophistry is beyond imagining! But then, the bold-faced duplicity of the Trump/McConnell strangle-hold on Washington is nothing if not beyond any imaginable expectation of the depths of corruption to which our government would sink,
God bless (HELP!) the USA!
