Durbin says Republicans have been “packing the court for the past three and a half years”

Appearing Sunday on “Meet the Press,” Democrat Senator Dick Durbin said “The American people have watched the Republicans packing the court for the past three and a half years, and they brag about it,.”

He added “we are dealing with people on the court, packing into the court, with little or no qualifications for a long time.”

Durbin also continued the Democrat’s general contention that Republicans are acting hypocritically based on their opposition on considering Merrick Garland in 2016.

“The base is correct in believing that the Republicans changed the rules four years ago, now they’ve completely reversed themselves” Durbin said.

Durbin also addressed Democrat North Carolina Senate Candidate Cal Cunningham’s sexting scandal, saying Cunningham has “admitted wrongdoing, apologized for it and the campaign continues.”
