 The latest desperate attempt from Democrats to prevent Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is to claim that judicial nominees should not be confirmed as long as the President is under investigation.  Two problems with that:

1.  As we now know, Donald Trump has been “under investigation” continuously since before he was even elected, in an undefined, unlimited, based-on-phony-evidence probe that will apparently keep going unto infinity, peeking under every rock and pebble to find a crime, any crime, to justify the investigation. By that standard, no President would ever be able to do anything, which I’m sure was the point, but it has no Constitutional basis.  

2.  The Democrats seem to forget that the Senate confirmed two of Bill Clinton’s SCOTUS picks while he was under investigation for actual crimes and under subpoena.  Even though Republicans disagreed with the liberal views of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Steven Breyer, both votes were hugely lopsided: 96-3 and 87-9, respectively.  Senate Republicans respected that Presidents have the power to nominate Justices and that elections have consequences.  Unfortunately, for most of today’s Democrats, the only consequences the last election held were that it cost them their sanity.

    Kavanaugh confirmation: One side can stall it for a while. They can also not confirm him. For POTUS, next candidate please.
    After two more in next two years, maybe POTUS may select a Democrat approved person a month before the 2020 election. Hard choice between Obama and Hillary. It will drive a group of people insane. For now, have a good laugh, have dinner and go to bed.

    It's a good thing POTUS has a strong backbone because it's not about him but about being republican. No matter who it had been, if it's republican, it's going to be attacked by the dem' such a provocative way and with abandon. It's sad and pathetic and unexpected (at least for me) to see the viciousness of these attacks....SAD!!!
