McConnell Says He Won’t Meet With Obama SCOTUS Pick Because No Hearings Will Be Held

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says no meeting is needed with whoever President Obama nominates to the Supreme Court because no hearings will take place.

 According to The Hill:

“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday said he won’t even meet with President Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

McConnell said Republican members of the Judiciary Committee unanimously recommended to him that there should not be confirmation hearings this year.

In light of that, McConnell said a meeting with Obama’s nominee is unnecessary because he or she won’t be considered.

“I don’t know the purpose of such a visit [by the nominee.] I would not be inclined to take one myself,” he said.”
