Hillary Clinton: Republicans "Made A New Precedent" To Wait On Supreme Court Nominations

|

In an interview Sunday with NBC's "Meet the Press," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke about introducing the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to President Bill Clinton and said Republicans moving to replace her before the November election would be "incredibly dangerous."

"Let’s not give an inch," Clinton said. "Our institutions are being basically undermined by the lust for power (power for personal gain in the case of the president or power for institutional gain in the case of Mitch McConnell) at the cost of ensuring that our institutions withstand whatever the political winds might be."

"They talk about, 'Well you know we had other standards before,'" she said. "Well they made a new precedent, and that new precedent, which they all defended incredibly passionately, is to wait for the next president whoever that is to make the nomination."


"But as you clearly heard, that is not what they are intending," she said.
