On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Fox Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano called filling the vacancy left by the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg could be the "World War III of political battles" and how President Trump could be "playing with fire" by calling for a Senate vote to replace her.
"There's a little bit of playing with fire here because you have probably six very vulnerable Republicans, by very vulnerable I mean they are running for reelection, they've been behind in the polls consistently for a couple of weeks now. They're going to do what they think is right to get themselves reelected. Scalia once said there's only one reason politicians do or say anything, it's to get reelected, and that might not be what President Trump wants. So Mitch McConnell better count noses before he does anything. He's already lost two Republicans. He can only afford to lose one more. If he loses two more, his nomination isn't going to come to the floor."
"This will be a World War III of political battles and it will be right in the middle of a presidential election. And it'll all be aimed at those six vulnerable Republicans, one of whom is going to be front and center. Senator Lindsey Graham himself is running behind in his reelection bid in South Carolina. And if this nomination comes to pass, he'll be presiding over a few days of Senate Judiciary Committee hearings. And one of the Democrats on that committee is running for vice president with Joe Biden, Senator Kamala Harris."
