Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced that the President will soon be releasing an updated list of conservatives that he would consider nominating the Supreme Court. While Joe Biden told reporters in June that his team was putting together a list of Black women that he would consider nominating to the Court, we haven't heard any updates from him or his campaign.
The American people at least deserve an update on when they should be expecting to see Biden's list, but don't be surprised if the list — which is likely filled with radical members of the legal community — isn't released before Election Day.
Cheers to President @realDonaldTrump, for updating his Supreme Court list next week.— 🇺🇸 Mike Davis 🇺🇸 (@mrddmia) September 3, 2020
Q. Why won’t @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris release a list?
A. Because their list of leftwing judicial activists would scare the hell out of Real Americans.https://t.co/wLB5FsNqAT
As reported by Business Insider, here are some of the potential nominees that Biden may or may not be considering:
- Justice Leondra Kruger, California Supreme Court
- Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia
- Loretta Lynch, former U.S. Attorney General under President Barack Obama
- Michelle Alexander, Visiting Professor of Social Justice at Union Theological Seminary
- Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund
- Justice Anita Earls, North Carolina Supreme Court
- Melissa Murray, NYU law professor
- Stacey Abrams, activist
- Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia (and sister of Stacey Abrams)
Make that four out of nine. https://t.co/zMo2kUHwtW— Ed Whelan (@EdWhelanEPPC) September 3, 2020
As we noted earlier in the week, President's Trump's reelection is critical for preserving the legitimacy of the federal judiciary. This is highlighted by the fact that Joe Biden refuses to be honest with the American people and release a list of potential justices.
So where's the list, Joe?
