According to this USA Today article, President Barack Obama has spoken out about the current Supreme Court situation.

In a press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Obama “accused Senate Republicans of betraying their own constitutional principles.” He claims that the Republicans’ plan to block any nominations solely because it is an election year has absolutely no root in the Constitution.

However, Senate Republicans are accusing Democrats of using the process “to score as man political points as possible.” Republicans have shown no hint of backing down in the fight to nominate-or-not a new Supreme Court justice.
