McConnell and Senate Republicans spent most of the day Monday rebutting charges of hypocrisy, given that they held up President Barack Obama’s nominee to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat eight months before the 2016 election but are moving forward with Trump’s nominee less than six weeks before the 2020 election. Republicans say it’s different now because the GOP holds both the White House and the Senate, unlike in 2016 when Republicans controlled the Senate and Obama was in the White House.
