Biden on SCOTUS: ‘There Is No Biden Rule,’ It’s ‘Frankly Ridiculous’

‘There is no Biden rule; It doesn’t exist’

"So now you hear this talk about the Biden rule. Frankly ridiculous. There is no Biden rule. It doesn't exist. There is only one rule I ever followed. -- Followed in the judiciary committee. That was the constitution's clear rule of advice and consent. Article 2 of the constitution clearly states whenever there is a vacancy in one of the courts created by the constitution itself, the supreme court of the United States, the president shall -- not may, the president shall appoint someone to fill the vacancy with the advice and consent of the United States Senate. And advice and consent includes consulting and voting."
