Bill Clinton says he would suspend the filibuster to protect voting rights from GOP attacks
Former President Bill Clinton stepped into Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday, where he revealed which side he is on in the Democrats' battle over the filibuster. While many are in favor of abolishing it in the interests of protecting voting rights, some, like West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, are strongly against it. Senate Republicans recently dropped the prospect of a debate on the For the People Act and only stepped up calls to end the filibuster so the Democrats can pass the voting law.
“I understand the president is reluctant to get rid of it entirely,” said Clinton, “and I sympathize with Joe Manchin trying to stand up for what's right and represent people who voted more than 2 to 1 for President Trump . But I think that when it comes to maintaining democracy, I would abandon the filibuster because I consider it essential. "
