NANCY Pelosi on Friday demanded that the three Supreme Court justices appointed by President Donald Trump recuse themselves from cases tied to potential election disputes.
The house speaker claimed that the judges want to make it harder for people to vote, citing a conflict of interest because they were nominated by Trump.
“They should all recuse themselves, but especially the last appointment because 10 states were voting when Ruth Bader Ginsburg died.”
“The day this new justice was sworn in, the whole country was voting, and it shouldn’t be something that should count toward this election.”
She also cited a similar decision made by the court involving mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania, although in this case the state can still count ballots received after November 3.
Trump-appointed justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch voted to prevent ballots from being counted.
“I don’t trust the Supreme Court one bit,” the Democrat said.
“Even the court cases they have decided in our favor, they said they will revisit, and it’s just appalling.”
She called it “most unfortunate” that Trump chose to rush through Barrett’s confirmation weeks before the election and even asserted that he did it for his own benefit.
“He cheapened the Supreme Court,” she said. “It’s almost impossible to cheapen himself any further, but nonetheless, he reinforced that.”
Meanwhile, Democratic nominee Joe Biden‘s lead in the polls over President Trump has slightly narrowed.
A Fox News national survey published on Friday showed that Biden now has an eight-point advantage, down from 10 points since early October.
But Biden supporters (41 percent) are more than twice as likely as Trump supporters (18 percent) to describe their vote as being “against” the other candidate.

Support for the former vice president among likely voters has hovered between 51 and 53 percent since early September.
The survey also showed Trump leads Biden in support among white men by 17 points and among rural voters by 18 points.
Most voters casting their ballot in person back Trump (53 percent), while a majority of those voting by mail are rooting for Biden (65 percent).
