(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding President Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court:
“Let’s be real, voters will decide in only eight months on Election Day who will get the opportunity to fill the Supreme Court vacancy. So President Obama’s lame duck nomination of Judge Merrick Garland is pure gamesmanship. There is no urgency, as the Supreme Court continues to function and issue decisions. Too many decisions by the Supreme Court are political and have nothing to do with the U.S. Constitution, so Judicial Watch welcomes the coming public debate about liberal judicial activism.”
