“The View” co-host Joy Behar asked famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz on Tuesday why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was not in jail after he blocked the consideration of former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee in 2016.
“They stole the first nomination to the Supreme Court, absolute theft, unconstitutional. I have to tell you, I’m a little critical of President Obama, whom I voted for. He should have nominated Merrick Garland, and should have sworn him in, and should have dared the Republicans to say kick him out of office. They have no right not to decide a case. The Constitution says advise and consent. It doesn’t say delay and postpone.”
“Well, how come Mitch McConnell is not in jail? That’s what I want to l know. ”
“You want to put everybody in jail. I’m against putting people in jail unless they have actually committed crimes.”
