(Natural News) Following the recent death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the political sphere has been abuzz with speculation about who might be nominated to replace her, either immediately by President Trump or later on with Joe Biden potentially at the helm. But Biden has indicated that he will not be releasing the names of any of his potential nominees before the election, probably because they are too radical.
While claiming that Trump replacing Ginsburg before the Nov. 3 election would represent an “abuse of power,” Biden refused to even hint at who he might choose as her replacement, insisting that it must wait until after people’s ballots are cast.
At the same time, Biden has issued a public plea for Senate Republicans to hold off on voting any nominated candidate into Ginsburg’s vacant seat. This follows an announcement by Trump that he is already compiling a list of females, one of whom will more than likely be nominated by the Senate before the election.
“We can’t ignore the cherished system of checks and balances,” Biden stated, calling the president’s plan to replace Ginsburg before the election an “exercise of raw political power.”
“That includes this whole business of releasing a list of potential nominees that I would put forward,” Biden added to a very small crowd gathered to support him in Philadelphia.

Biden says he would only nominate Supreme Court candidates with “consent” of both Democrats and Republicans
As you may recall, then-candidate Trump released the names of his potential nominees before being elected back in 2016, which is considered to have been an unprecedented move at the time. That announcement followed the death of Antonin Scalia, which occurred earlier that same year in February.
“It’s no wonder they ask that I release the list only after she passed away,” Biden stated, referring to what Trump did. “It is a game for them. It is a play to gin up emotions and anger. There’s a reason why no other candidate than President Trump has ever done such a thing.”
Biden’s rationale for not releasing the names of his potential nominees is that doing so might influence their decisions in their current roles, as well as subject them to what he described as “unrelenting political attacks.”
According to Biden, the earliest any of his potential nominees would get a hearing would be sometime in 2021 “at the earliest.”
“She would endure those attacks for months on end without being able to defend herself,” Biden stated about his potential nominee, implying that she would be a woman.
“Thirdly and finally, perhaps most importantly, if I win, I’ll make my choice for the Supreme Court not based on a partisan election campaign, but on what prior presidents have done, Republican and Democrats, and I have served with them,” Biden further added, explaining that he would only proceed “after consulting Republicans and Democrats in the United States Senate and seeking their advice and asking for their consent.”
For someone who is already widely ridiculed concerning his repeated unsolicited sexual advances on women and children without their consent, Biden sure has a lot of nerve suggesting that he will somehow follow a different set of rules with the Supreme Court should he be elected president.
If elected, Biden has suggested that he is planning to nominate a black woman to the court.
“None of this matters,” wrote one Epoch Times commenter, noting that Trump has already “said he will nominate someone” before the election.
“Mitch (McConnell) said the Senate would vote on the confirmation,” this same commenter added. “Ted Cruz said last evening, ‘we have the votes.’ This is just political theater.”
