Justice Scalia Revealed Just 1 Request For His Replacement In This 2012 Interview

Following news of U.S. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia’s unexpected death on Saturday, politicos on both sides of the aisle have weighed in on the ramifications of appointing his replacement. Prominent Republicans hope to stall the nomination process until Obama’s successor, whom they naturally hope will also be a Republican, takes office, thus maintaining Scalia’s strong conservative voice on the bench. Democrat leaders, on the other hand, have made it clear that they believe voters endorsed a more liberal high court when Obama won re-election in 2012. As the partisan debate intensifies, a years-old clip of the outspoken jurist has begun to spread online. In the 2012 Fox News Channel interview, the then-76-year-old Scalia shared his simple desire for the man or woman selected to take his seat.
