Sen. Lee Says Senate Will Advise and Consent on Trump Court Nominee

September 21, 2020

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Monday about the Supreme Court’s new vacancy:

“In 2016, President Obama nominated a replacement for Justice Scalia and my Senate colleagues and I gave our advice and consent on the nominee, consistent with the Constitution, by rejecting him. This year, President Trump will nominate a replacement for Justice Ginsburg and, consistent with the Constitution, we will again give our advice and consent. If we like the nominee, we will confirm her. If we don’t, we won’t. It’s that simple.”
