Sanders Would Ask President Obama to Withdraw his Supreme Court Nominee

In an interview with Rachel Maddow on Thursday, Bernie Sanders acknowledged that although President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee is passable, he would ask the president to withdraw judge Merrick Garland as the next Supreme Court nominee because there are a lot more progressive judges capable of filling the ninth seat on the court.

Maddow asked, “If you get the democratic nomination and you were elected president in November, would you ask president Obama to withdraw that nomination in a lame duck so you could name your own nominee?”

“Yes I would,” Sanders answered. He went on to say that he is “one hundred percent prepared” to support the President’s nominee, “but there are some more progressive judges out there.” Sanders then spoke about his “litmus test” for possible judges, and that test is a judge’s apatite to do away with Citizen’s United.
