Obama AG Eric Holder questions legitimacy of Supreme Court after Kavanaugh confirmation

This is what the Democrats do. They tried to destroy a man’s life and career in order to gain control over the Supreme Court. Now that they have failed, they question the legitimacy of the Court itself. This is just like Hillary Clinton castigating Donald Trump for refusing to say he would accept the election results no matter what happened, and then turning around and spending the next two years questioning the election results and embroiling the nation in controversy over ridiculous conspiracy theories involving the Russians. Holder, like the entire Obama team and its boss, is a disgrace.

Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder reacted to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Saturday by questioning the legitimacy of the court and arguing that it needed to regain the nation’s trust.

Holder — who served as the nation’s top lawyer under former President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2015 — said the treatment of former Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland by Senate Republicans, as well as Kavanaugh’s confirmation, meant the legitimacy of the court was in question.“With the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the process which led to it, (and the treatment of Merrick Garland), the legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned,” he tweeted. “The Court must now prove – through its work – that it is worthy of the nation’s trust.”…

Obama nominated Garland to fill the seat of Justice Antonin Scalia after Scalia’s death in early 2016. But Republicans held the Senate and refused to hold hearings for Garland, saying that it should wait until after the 2016 election. When President Trump took office in January 2017, he instead nominated now-Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Democrats have accused Republicans of “stealing” a seat that belonged to Garland, while Republicans have said that there is a long-standing tradition of not confirming nominees during a presidential election year….

“As you lament the Merrick Garland outrage never forget that McConnell and R’s did not fill lower court seats for YEARS,” he said. “Those are the seats being filled now. Use the rage of today to get people out to vote and be rid of these people. Your voice matters. Your vote counts. VOTE!”…
