Manchin suggests he won’t just rubber stamp Biden’s SCOTUS pick without vetting

Most Democrats believe President Biden will have no problem getting whoever he picks as the next Supreme Court Justice through due to the 50-50 split Senate. Biden has said he will only consider a black woman.

However, Senator Joe Manchin says he will simple rubber-stamp President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Breyer without vetting.

Manchin said “I take my Constitutional responsibility to advise and consent on a nominee to the Supreme Court very seriously.”

“I look forward to meeting with and evaluating the qualifications of President Biden’s nominee to fill this Supreme Court vacancy,” he added.
