By    |   Tuesday, 23 Feb 2016 05:20 PM

Former Assistant Attorney Gen. Webb Hubbell told Newsmax TV on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton's assertions that congressional Republicans' refusal to vote on a Supreme Court nominee by President Barack Obama is "a blast from the Jim Crow past" was merely "political rhetoric."

"I don't see that happening," Hubbell, a former law partner of the Democratic front-runner who served in the Bill Clinton White House, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" in an interview. "I don't know what she's talking about, but this is political rhetoric.

"They're all saying it. They're all doing it — and there are some attempts to limit voting and some attempts to require ID's where people can't get ID's.

"That should be stopped," he said. "I don't think it's the end of the world."

Hubbell told Malzberg that President Barack Obama has the power to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, but no matter what he does, the terror suspects housed there have the right to a fair trial.

"It's not a matter of closing Gitmo. We got people who have been down there for over a decade — and they need to either be tried or let go.

"We don't have the right to just arrest people and hold them forever without bringing them to trial."
