Ted Cruz Warns of 'Constitutional Crisis' If Ginsburg Is Not Replaced, Fears a 'Contested Election'

  Ted Cruz Warns of 'Constitutional Crisis' If Ginsburg Is Not Replaced, Fears a 'Contested Election' After the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Texas senator said the election cannot occur "with a 4-4 Court."Tributes have poured for Ginsburg as a liberal and feminist champion following her death on Friday from cancer at the age of 87. Democrats have expressed anger at the move by Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell to put a nominee to a vote within hours of her death being announced.

But that sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe a Pelosi or Shifty Schiff ... Maybe she did and maybe she didn't," Trump said during a phone interview with "Fox & Friends."

He added: "That came out of the wind, it sounds so beautiful."

Ginsburg, a Supreme Court justice for 27 years, died on Friday at age 87. NPR reported that just days before her death, the iconic judge dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."

Republicans didn't wait even 24 hours after Ginsburg died to announce that they intend to hold on a vote on Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

"The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement on Friday night.

"President Trump's nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate," McConnell added, indicating that he did not believe the impending presidential election should have any sway over the process.

This marked a massive flip-flop for McConnell, who, in 2016, refused to even hold a confirmation hearing for then-President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, on the basis that the nomination came too close to the election. Top Republican senators fell in line and parroted McConnell's position at the time.

President Donald Trump on Monday cast doubt on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’ s dying wish that her vacancy on the Supreme Court be filled by the winner of Clara Spera, Ginsburg' s granddaughter and a fellow at the American Civil Liberties Union, told POLITICO that shortly before her death Friday

Trump Suggests RBG ’ s Dying Wish to Not Be Replaced Until After Election Was Written by Adam Schiff Ainsley Earhart brought up the statement that Ginsburg dictated to her granddaughter shortly before she died : “My most fervent wish is that I will I mean, maybe she did and maybe she didn ’ t .”

Garland was nominated on March 16, 2016, or 237 days before the 2016 election. Ginsburg died 46 days before the 2020 election, and Republicans are now moving to push through a Trump nominee as quickly as possible.

With a Republican president in the White House, the GOP is suddenly comfortable moving forward with the Supreme Court confirmation process although a presidential election is on the horizon. Republican senators are now facing allegations from Democratic colleagues that their word essentially means nothing.

"I want you to use my words against me. If there's a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let's let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination," GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said in 2016.

Fast-forward to 2020, and Graham wrote on Twitter that he will support Trump "in any effort to move forward" with filling Ginsburg's seat.

Graham justified his stance by stating that "the two biggest changes regarding the Senate and judicial confirmations that have occurred in the last decade have come from Democrats." He cited then-Sen. Harry Reid's decision to invoke the "nuclear option" in 2013 — eliminating filibusters on executive appointments and most judicial nominations, excluding the Supreme Court — while accusing Democrats of conspiring to "destroy the life of Brett Kavanaugh and hold that Supreme Court seat open."

McConnell also invoked the "nuclear option" in 2017, doing away with filibusters on Supreme Court nominees, but Graham made no mention of this.

Trump has not yet announced his nominee for the vacant seat, but is expected to do so later this week.
