Biden Falsely Claims He Never Promised to Release a List of SCOTUS Nominees

Joe Biden said Sunday that he never promised to release a list of SCOTUS nominees. This is provably false.
CLAIM: Joe Biden suggested Sunday that he never promised to release his list of potential Supreme Court nominees.
VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. In June, Biden promised a list, though he gave no specific date for releasing it.
Some of you may be wondering why this lie from Joe Biden is so important. So what? He promised to release his list of Supreme Court nominees then backed out. What is the problem?
The problem is Biden running his campaign claiming that he is the beacon of truth in American politics when in fact he is the swampiest of all swamp monsters after 30+ years in D.C.
Not convinced he was lying? We have the facts to backup our claim!
Former Vice President Joe Biden gave a speech Sunday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, attacking Republicans for suggesting they would confirm a new Supreme Court justice to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the next presidential term.
Along the way, Biden falsely claimed that the Supreme Court was not even planning a session before the election. He also pushed back on the idea that he would need to release a list of potential nominees, as President Donald Trump did in 2016, and as he did again earlier this month.
It is a flat-out lie for Biden to claim that Trump only asked him to release his list after Ginsburg died. The Trump campaign has been doing so for months. Earlier this month, for example, Trump said: “Joe Biden has refused to release his list, perhaps because he knows the names are so extremely far left that they could never withstand public scrutiny or receive acceptance.”
Trump said the same thing in June:

Later in June, Biden himself said that he was working on a list of potential Supreme Court nominees — consisting solely of African American women — and said he would release it, eventually: “We are putting together a list of African American women who are qualified and have the experience to be on the court. I am not going to release that until we go further down the line in vetting them as well.”
Whatever the merits of these arguments, the fact is that Biden suggested he would release a list, and now says the opposite.
This claim would be rated entirely false, but for the fact that Biden did not make a specific commitment about a specific date.
