Trump’s 3rd SCOTUS pick in 4 years?

I was wrong


Associate Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer

Beginning in 2019 when I believed Ruth Bader Ginsberg was already dead, I said it wouldn’t be announced until 2020.

Was she already dead in 2019?

Irrelevant to how I was wrong.

More than 30 (Lower) Federal Judiciary positions have already been confirmed in 2020, so why couldn’t the President confirm a new SCOTUS appointment?
