(UnitedVoice.com) – In 2016, Judge Merrick Garland was nominated by then-President Barack Obama to fill Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat after he passed away. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blocked the nomination, citing the impending 2016 presidential campaign. Now, five years later he reportedly plans to support the radical judge for a different position.
On February 23, McConnell told Politico he supports Garland’s nomination as the attorney general. The minority leader’s support comes even after the judge said the attacks on federal buildings in Portland weren’t terrorism because they happened at night. Republicans have long held the antifa attacks across the country were, indeed, acts of domestic terrorism.

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham took McConnell’s flip-flop as evidence he will not be running for office again after his current term is up. Although the minority leader hasn’t indicated he won’t run, he’s certainly burning a lot of bridges on the Right. The Kentucky Republican still has six years left in his term, so only time will tell.
