CRUZ: ‘Under the Constitution, Members of the Judiciary Do Not Appoint Their Own Successors’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.23.20

Senator Ted Cruz weighed-in Wednesday on the impending political battle over the nomination of a new Supreme Court Justice; telling his Democratic colleagues that “members of the judiciary do not appoint their own successors.”

“This endeavor started with a resolution that was intended to be a bipartisan resolution commemorating the life and service of Justice Ginsburg. That follows the tradition of this body,” said Cruz.

“The Democratic leader wants to add a statement that Justice Ginsburg’s position should not be filled until a new President is installed,” he added. “That, of course, is not the standard. Under the Constitution, members of the judiciary do not appoint their own successors.”

BREAKING NOW: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Passes Away at the Age of 87

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.18.20

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away Friday at the age of 87.

The liberal leader was nominated to the bench by President Bill Clinton back in 1993.

“Her first major opinion as a justice came in 1996 when she wrote the majority decision in United States v. Virginia. The ruling struck down the Virginia Military Institute’s 157-year-old policy of male-only admissions as unconstitutional, and set a stricter legal standard for government action that treats men and women differently,” reports The Hill.

 

 

 

“Women seeking and fit for a VMI-quality education cannot be offered anything less under the state’s obligation to afford them genuinely equal protection,” Ginsburg wrote in the 7-1 decision.
