Ahead of the 2020 election, leftist organization Demand Justice has released a list of potential nominees for the Supreme Court should a Democrat win the White House. 

"In 2016, Donald Trump released a shortlist of possible Supreme Court picks, and it succeeded in rallying conservative voters to his side. In 2020, the Democratic candidates running for president should also state what kind of justices they would appoint. Doing so would show their commitment to the Supreme Court as an issue and draw a clear line in the sand about what is at stake in the coming election," Demand Justice released in a statement. "To prod the candidates, Demand Justice is releasing its own Supreme Court shortlist of possible nominees in the next Democratic administration. Our list is made up of brilliant lawyers who have spent their careers fighting for progressive values and represent the diversity of our nation."

"In releasing this list, we also hope to make clear that the next Democratic president ought to approach the task of nominating judges with a new playbook––one that prioritizes unabashedly progressive lawyers and legal thinkers, who have all too often been pushed aside," the statement continues. 

According to the Judicial Crisis Network, an organization that has supported nominees like Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, the Demand Justice list is quite radical. 

The group also released criteria Democrat candidates should use when selecting nominees. It's so far left, current liberal Supreme Court justices wouldn't qualify. 

Even SCOTUSBlog is knocking it. 

In the meantime, President Trump has not only successfully placed two Justices on the Supreme Court, but has nominated, with the Senate confirming, federal judges at record pace.
