Merrick Garland’s No-Win Scenario

It would not have mattered. Had Antonin Scalia died December 31, 2015 instead of February 13, 2016, it wouldn’t of mattered. Because, no matter what, Mitch McConnell was never going to allow President Obama a third Supreme Court justice. It was about obstructing Obama and humiliating his never-had-a-chance nominee, Merrick Garland.

Except, Garland was never humiliated. He went to work every day as the Chief Justice of the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, a post he held from 2013–2021.
