Nashville, TN — Ahead of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote to advance Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Senate floor and the final presidential debate in Nashville, Team Hagerty today released a new video calling out former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris for repeatedly dodging questions on packing the court.
“Voters deserve to know the type of judge a presidential candidate plans to nominate to the federal bench before he is elected into office. The balance of powers contemplated by our Constitution are at stake in this election — and Joe Biden should be held accountable for his lack of transparency,” said Bill Hagerty. “Unlike Joe Biden, President Trump has been completely transparent with the American people, by releasing his list of potential Supreme Court nominees – all of whom are solid constitutionalists – prior to both elections. The refusal to disclose their list of prospective justices belies the fact that the Biden-Harris Administration would pack the courts with activist judges, who would, in essence, become a super-legislative body with life-time appointments — not accountable to the electorate. The Washington liberals want to make the Supreme Court a back door to impose their agenda, instead of the separate and distinct branch the founding fathers contemplated — a branch charged with interpreting the law as it is written — not making it up based on whim or political disposition. We must reject the Biden-Harris agenda that will be destructive to our Republic. The time has come to vote for President Trump and for the U.S. Senate to protect our Constitution and confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.”
