Democratic vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris has claimed that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party are “ignoring” the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s “final wish,” according to Breitbart News.
“Already the president and his party have chosen to ignore Justice Ginsburg’s final wish,” she said, referring to Ginsburg’s alleged request that her seat not be filled until after the November 2020 election.

According to Ginsburg’s granddaughter, Clara Spera, Ginsburg said, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Since then, Democrats have slammed Republicans for going against Ginsburg’s “dying wish.”
Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish was that her seat would not be filled until a new president is installed! Senate Democrats, do not back down. You have a tough fight ahead but our future is on the line! No SCOTUS appointment before the election!!!

As reported by Breitbart News’s Matthew Boyle, “Dana Houle, a Democrat activist who was once a chief of staff on Capitol Hill to a Democrat lawmaker, tweeted Friday night that he hopes Barrett is investigated over the children she and her husband adopted from Haiti. ‘I would love to know which adoption agency Amy Coney Barrett & her husband used to adopt the two children they brought here from Haiti,’ Houle wrote.”
More from Breitbart:
However, waiting until after the November 3, 2020, election would run the risk of having only eight justices in the case the results of the election need to be decided by Supreme Court, as happened in 2020.
President Trump on Saturday announced the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacant seat on the court.
Her nomination was well-received among conservatives and condemned by Democrats.
Democrats’ attacks on her began even before she was officially nominated, aimed at her adoption of two children from Haiti.
