Kavanaugh’s Nomination is Now Illegitimate
Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Media Director Andrew Patrick issued the following statement:
“Yesterday, Donald Trump was publicly identified as a co-conspirator in a federal crime — a crime that he allegedly used to win the White House.
“Due to yesterday’s events, Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is now illegitimate. It is unthinkable for an alleged criminal to choose justices for the nation’s highest court — a court that may have to determine whether a sitting president may be indicted. For the sake of order, decorum, and democracy Kavanaugh’s upcoming hearing must be delayed until the president’s name is cleared or he is removed from office.”
