Saying he has been racked with guilt for years over it, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell today apologized for blocking the election year nomination of Merrick Garland to fill a Supreme Court vacancy by then President Barack Obama.
“I feel just terrible about it.”
McConnell said he always knew it was wrong, but it has taken until today for him to publicly admit how much of a mistake he made.
“Unfortunately what’s done is done, but I have learned my lesson and promise it won’t happen again.”
In a sign of just how cut up he is over blocking Garland’s nomination, McConnell said should an vacancy appear on the Supreme Court in an election year again he would bend over backwards to allow the President to fill it.
“You have my word on that.”
Asked if this has anything to do with news that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s cancer has returned, McConnell said he hadn’t heard about that yet.
“It has? That’s too bad.”
