What my husband, Elijah Cummings, would say if he were alive today

Despite her dying wish that she not be replaced until a new president is installed, President Donald J. Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell barely waited a few hours following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before announcing their intention to do just that.

Opinion: Attention Mitch: Filling RBG's seat now could break American democracy

While a law student at the University of Kentucky, the institution where I teach, Senator Mitch McConnell surely learned about the importance of justice and democracy. In the wake of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing on Friday evening, there is one action that McConnell can take that may very well save our democracy: announce that the Senate will not consider a Supreme Court nomination until after Inauguration Day 2021.
