Brindisi Opposes Pres.Trump’s Right to SCOTUS Nominee

Tenney Condemns Brindisi’s Move to Block President Trump

NY22 – Today, Anthony Brindisi cribbed from Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden’s talking points in claiming that President Trump should not to fill the Supreme Courtvacancy with the advice and consent of the Senate as required by the US Constitution.

Claudia Tenney, Republican candidate for New York’s 22nd Congressional District, condemned Brindisi’s remarks and reiterated her support for President Trump’s right and duty to fill the Supreme Court vacancy with a Constitutionally-minded judge when approved by the United States Senate.

Tenney, an attorney admitted to the US Supreme Court bar, noted that both the Constitution and precedent require that the sitting president and current Senate act on a judicial vacancy promptly.

Brindisi told the Syracuse Post-Standard:

“the Senate should wait until the election is over.”

Claudia Tenney said: “Brindisi is parroting the hypocritical lines of Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden and wants to stop President Trump from appointing a judge required by Constitutional principle. Article II, Section 2 of the US Constitution provides that the President shall nominate, with the advice and consent of the Senate, judges to the Supreme Court. President Trump and the Senate were duly elected by the American people in 2016 and 2018 pledging to fill Court vacancies with judges who firmly adhere to the Constitution. The Senate should fulfill their Constitutional duties, not bow to the political schemes of Brindisi and the Democratic party bosses.”
