Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) criticized Democrats for their moralizing over President Obama’s failed Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, at a Senate Judiciary Hearing Monday.

“We keep hearing about Merrick Garland,” Cornyn said. “I guaranatee you, if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency, we’d never hear Merrick Garland’s name again.”

Cornyn called the 2016 presidential election “a referendum on which of the candidates” should fill Antonin Scalia’s seat. “The American people answered that question, and said they preferred President Trump to make that selection.”

Several Democrats had brought up Garland during Gorsuch’s nomination hearing as a reason to oppose Trump’s nominee.
