Let’s get some facts straight about the U.S. Supreme Court.
Seventeen justices have been nominated and placed on the court during a presidential election year.
Joe Biden, when he was a senator, made up the rule that the Senate should not approve a justice nomination in a president’s last year in office (his lame duck year).
The Constitution does not have a “dying wish” clause. nThe only restrictions are in the Constitution itself.
Want a new rule? Add it in the form of an amendment, like you are supposed to.
