It’s week #7 of our campaign against this administration’s nomination for SCOTUS and the narrative keeps changing to the detriment of our country. In the light of last week’s dramatic events and felony convictions, we must be more diligent than ever in our opposition to Kavanaugh’s confirmation and at the very least postpone the hearing until after all documentation is provided and the Mueller investigation is completed. We must speak out against this classic case of “the fox guarding the henhouse.”
Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are demanding that Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing be postponed “given the possibility of criminal wrongdoing” by President Trump.
Excerpt from article: The 10 Democrats on the committee on Friday sent a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the panel’s chairman, asking him to delay the hearing, which is scheduled to start on Sept. 4, and convene a meeting to discuss how to reach a “bipartisan, fair, and transparent process.”
“Given the possibility of criminal wrongdoing by the President, doubts that Judge Kavanaugh believes a president can even be investigated, and the unprecedented lack of transparency regarding this nominee’s record, we should not move forward with hearings on September 4th,” the Democratic senators wrote.
The formal demand to Grassley comes days after Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, was found guilty on eight charges of bank and tax fraud and the president’s former lawyer Michael Cohen implicated Trump as an unnamed co-conspirator in his guilty plea on fraud and campaign finance law charges.
“The President’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts and stated, under oath, that the President directed him to commit a federal crime by violating campaign finance law. This was done in the run-up to the election, with the intent of influencing the outcome,” Democrats wrote.
They added that Kavanaugh, if confirmed, may “be called upon to decide whether this President should face investigation or possible indictment for criminal wrongdoing.”
Let’s join these Senators in their demand. Call your senators and tell them you stand with Democrat members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the letter they have sent to Chuck Grassley! Postpone the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing NOW!
