Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday, Sept. 18, called on Senate Democrats to use every possible “procedural obstacle” to prevent Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) from confirming a new Supreme Court justice to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, before the November election.

“Democrats who are in the Senate will have to use every single possible maneuver that is available to them to make it clear that they are not going to permit Mitch McConnell to enact the greatest travesty, the monumental hypocrisy, that would arise from him attempting to fill this position,” Clinton said on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” reported Breitbart News.

“It’s also a reminder that she [Ginsburg] stood on the side of moving us towards a perfect union and really underscoring equality, not just for women but for every American, and I don’t want to see that legacy ripped up by political hypocrisy coming from Mitch McConnell,” she continued.

Clinton claimed that McConnell did “great damage” to the Senate and urged her fellow Democrats to “go down fighting.”

“You know, every possible procedural obstacle has to be thrown in the way of this power drive by McConnell. There are things that can be done that need to be done literally 24/7. I am sure [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer and his leadership team is already looking and talking at it. Having said all that, you know, I understand how impervious to reason or principle McConnell is,” Clinton said. “Let’s go down fighting and not give an inch in the face of the kind of hypocrisy that met President Obama when he tried to fulfill his constitutional obligation to appoint Mayor Garland to the court.”

Clinton’s comments came after McConnell promised that President Donald Trump’s nominee will receive a floor vote in the Senate to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away earlier in the day.

Meanwhile, left-wing media figures rushed to threaten violent riots if McConnell confirms Ginsburg’s replacement before the election, reported Daily Wire. 

“If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots….*more, bigger riots,” political writer Laura Bassett tweeted.

Writer Beau Willimon threatened the United States with, “shutting down the country if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.”

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden along with President Barack Obama have called for the vacancy to remain open until after the November election.

“Let me be clear: The voters should pick a President, and that President should select a successor to Justice Ginsburg,” Biden tweeted.
