Senator Ron Johnson, who’s said he’ll support Donald Trump as his party’s nominee, this morning confirmed that Republican obstructionism on refusing to even consider an Obama nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy is pure partisan politics.
Johnson confessed that it would be a totally different if there was a Republican in the White House.
Apparently Johnson is — like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the rest of his Senate colleagues — choosing to ignore the Constitution and hold out for a Donald Trump nominee.
“It’s a different situation,” Johnson said. “Generally, and this is the way it works out politically, if you’re replacing — if a conservative president’s replacing a conservative justice, there’s a little more accommodation to it.”
