Ingraham: Democrats using ‘dark money’ for radical left political aspirations in Supreme Court
Laura Ingraham slammed Democrats’ attempts to exert political control over the Supreme Court using “dark money” during Thursday’s monologue.
Democrats intend to rush a nominee “because that’s what the black money trolls of the left want,” Ingraham said. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, who was nominated by former President Bill Clinton, will retire at the end of his term, giving President Biden an opportunity to fulfill his campaign promise to appoint a black woman to the highest court in the land.
Since the announcement, several Democrats have expressed their intention to quickly nominate a candidate, Ingraham added.
“From the outset, the push for Judge Breyer to retire has been led by a shady network of…black money groups who are working to overthrow – not just to change or add to our justice system – but to change our whole system of government and frankly, our whole way of life,” she said in “The Ingraham Angle.”
“This is a leftist cartel we warned you about over a year ago. Meet the opaquely funded group called Demand Justice, which is really just a front group for the Sixteen Thirty Fund Demand Justice is run by former Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon, who revealed yesterday how that group bullied Breyer off the court and how they want the court to help validate a wish list of extreme left of radical policies ranging from climate change to gun control.”
Brian Fallon said on MSNBC, “A year ago, we began publicly calling on Judge Breyer to step down. What I’m hoping is that it will open people’s minds to what’s possible in terms of what the Supreme Court might be, what it might look like, and we’ll start to be a little bit bolder and more imaginative. In response to rulings coming out in June on issues ranging from abortion to gun safety to the ability to regulate greenhouse gases…and this will be an opportunity for Democrats to see the need to support the expansion of the court.”
Ingraham concluded that the left was not even trying to pretend it was looking for a candidate dedicated to the Constitution.
“Now remember, they’re not even trying to pretend that this appointment involves complex questions of statutory interpretation or philosophy or constitutional analysis,” she said. “There’s only one thing that matters to those vulture activists surrounding Breyer still hot on the site in his place on the bench: using the court to do what Congress doesn’t have the votes to pass. C is what they want. The best name for Demand Justice would be Demand Revolution.”
