WATCH: Elie Mystal Slams Kavanaugh, Says Biden Won’t Nominate Someone Credibly Accused of Trying to Rape Someone

There have been 115 Supreme Court justices in the history of the United States. 108 of them have been white men. When Joe Biden was on the campaign trail, he pledged to nominate a Black woman for the court if he got the opportunity. And that opportunity arose yesterday with Stephen Breyer’s retirement announcement.

Fox News and other Conservative outlets went on the attack against the yet-unnamed nominee. They argued that Biden is picking a candidate based on race rather than qualifications. During an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday night, Elie Mystal had a strong rebuttal against those claims.

Host Joy Reid asked the legal expert, “I wonder what you make of this opportunity that Biden has and what he might do with it, and if you have any tea leaves of who he might choose from this incredible list of judges.”

Mystal began, “All of the women that are being bandied about right now are immaculately qualified… in particular when you talk about Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is maybe the leader in the clubhouse right now. We’re talking about a woman with a Harvard College degree, a Harvard Law degree, who has served as the head of the U.S. sentencing commission, who was a long-term judge who sitting right on the D.C. Circuit right now.”

The legal expert continued:

“So we should not have an issue about their qualifications, to say nothing of their moral issues. Because I’m pretty sure, I don’t know this for a fact, but I am pretty sure that Joe Biden will not nominate somebody who has been credibly accused of trying to rape somebody when they were in high school.”
