Bill Clinton Blasts Trump, McConnell On Supreme Court: “Their First Value Is Power”

Former President Bill Clinton, who nominated Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday morning that it is “superficially hypocritical” for President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans to push to put a new justice on the Supreme Court before the November election. “She was highly respected because she bent over backwards to work with the other judges when she could. And she stood up and was counted when she couldn’t,” he said about the late Justice Ginsburg. Clinton said President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moving forward to replace Ginsburg before the election demonstrates their “first value is power and they’re trying to jam the court with as many ideological judges as they can.” “It’s going to further spread cynicism in our system.” “You can’t keep a democracy if there is one set of rules for one group and another set for everybody else,” Clinton said.
