McCaskill: ‘Unprecedented’ for GOP To Play Politics with SCOTUS Nominee

‘I love these guys who wave the Constitution when it’s convenient’


MCCASKILL: "Let me make sure I’m clear about this. I have no problem if Republicans want to say to the American people we will not vote for an Obama nominee. That’s fine. But to play politics with the constitution and to say there will be no hearings, there will be no vote, that’s just unprecedented in history. It has never happened. And I think most Americans don’t like it. I don’t think — you know, let’s just have a hearing, let the American people vet this nominee and then vote no. That’s your duty under the Constitution. I love these guys who wave the constitution when it’s convenient."
