Tom Cotton: GOP Should Not Help Confirm Biden’s Radical Nominees



Breitbart: Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) wrote on Saturday that Republicans should not help Democrats confirm President Joe Biden’s radical judges by allowing a “temporary” replacement to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on the Judiciary Committee.

Feinstein has faced calls to resign as she has continued her indefinite absence, which led the California Democrat to ask Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to “temporarily” fill her seat on the influential Judiciary Committee. With Feinstein’s absence, Senate Democrats have not been able to advance Biden’s judicial nominees.

As Michael Thorning, the Structural Democracy Director for the Bipartisan Policy Center, noted, this potential replacement would be “unprecedented” and would face significant hurdles as ten Senate Republicans would have to agree to this request from Schumer on the Senate floor.

Cotton, citing a Federalist op-ed piece written by Chris Bedford, wrote, “Republicans should not assist Democrats in confirming Joe Biden’s most radical nominees to the courts.” Bedford, a former senior editor at the Federalist and soon-to-be executive editor of the upcoming Common Sense magazine, said that if Republicans were to accede to Feinstein’s request, then they would only confirm judges that would uphold an “essentially lawless administration.” Biden has faced increasing scrutiny over his decision to nominate judges for other than their legal acumen.

The 46th president tapped Ketanji Brown Jackson to be his Supreme Court nominee in part because our courts “don’t look like America.”
