It’s been just over three days since the tragic death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia but it appears that some within the GOP are already willing to cave to Obama demands over who will replace the conservative icon!
Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, who chairs the powerful Judiciary Committee that is tasked with holding all Supreme Court nominee hearings, is considering holding hearings for Obama’s nominee despite conservatives wanting the seat left open until 2017.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has not ruled out holding committee hearings on President Barack Obama’s pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Though the longtime Iowa Republican agrees with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that the next president should select a new appointee to the nation’s highest court, he also told Iowa reporters that he has not made a final decision regarding committee consideration of a future justice and would take things a “step at a time.”
“I would wait until the nominee is made before I would make any decisions,” Grassley said, according to Radio Iowa. “This is a very serious position to fill and it should be filled and debated during the campaign and filled by either Hillary Clinton, Senator Sanders or whoever’s nominated by the Republicans.”
Conservatives cannot allow Obama to replace Scalia with a radical leftist on the Supreme Court. As Headline Politics reported earlier, it appears that Attorney General Loretta Lynch is Obama’s top choice to fill the vacancy!
