Rahm Emanuel: ‘Republicans Will Regret’ Confirming Amy Coney Barrett

‘Not only what they did here, but what they did to Merrick Garland at the end of 2016’


HOSTIN: "Rahm, Amy Coney Barrett is now Justice Barrett having been officially sworn in as the newest Supreme Court justice after what many Democrats are calling an illegitimate process. Minority Leader Schumer is saying Republicans will regret her confirmation. Do you think they will?"
EMANUEL: "Yes. Well, let me say — yes, I do think the Republicans will regret not only what they did here, but what they did to Merrick Garland at the end of 2016. They’ve twice now bent the rules and cracked them and broken them to basically seize power in the Supreme Court and politicized the Supreme Court. And I do think it’s going to lead, in my own view, assuming the election turns out like I think where Joe Biden will get elected and the Democrats will most likely take the Senate, it will bring a change to the filibuster rule, and I think it will help the Senate because it will make it a legislative body again rather than a body of obstruction.”
