MSNBC anchor Joy Reid said, Wednesday on her show “The ReidOut” that it was “scandalous” that Supreme Court Associate Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas were on the Supreme Court deciding abortion cases.

While discussing the replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, The Nation’s justice correspondent Elie Mystal said, “We should not have an issue about their qualifications, to say nothing of their moral qualification. Because I’m pretty sure, I don’t know this for a fact, but I am pretty sure that Joe Biden will not nominate somebody who has been credibly accused of trying to rape somebody when they were in high school. I’m pretty sure — I don’t know this for a fact that Joe Biden will not nominate someone who was accused of perjury in front of Congress at a previous confirmation hearing.”
