Leading Democratic politicians unloaded on President Trump’s “extreme right” pick to join the US Supreme Court Monday despite not knowing the actual identity of his nominee; calling Trump’s potential candidate a “corrupt bargain.”
Senator Bob Casey unloaded on the unnamed nominee Monday morning, hours before the Commander-in-Chief is set to reveal his choice at 9:00PM from the White House.
“I will oppose the nomination the President will make tonight because it represents a corrupt bargain with the far Right, big corporations, and Washington special interests,” tweeted Casey.

The legislator’s comments echoed similar statements made by Sen. Chris Coons, who claimed that the Senate “shouldn’t be considering this nominee.”
“I don’t think we should be rushing,” Coons said this week. “I frankly don’t even think we should be considering this nominee.”
ARMAGEDDON AGAIN? Kamala Harris Predicts ‘DESTRUCTION OF CONSTITUTION’ after Kennedy Retirement
Hyper-liberal Senator Kamala Harris painted a bleak picture for the country Wednesday night, saying, “We’re looking at the destruction of the Constitution” if Trump gets his next Supreme Court Justice confirmed.
Harris was speaking with MNSBC’s Chris Matthews when she unleashed her dire prediction just hours after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his plan to retire from the Supreme Court this July.
“If Trump gets what he wants here, what’s the Court going to look like for the next 30 years?” asked Matthews.
“We’re looking at a destruction of the Constitution of the United States, as far as I can tell based on all the folks he’s been appointing thus far for lifetime appointments,” she fired back.

BREAKING: Justice ANTHONY KENNEDY to Retire, NEW VACANCY on the Supreme Court
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced Wednesday his plans to retire from the nation’s highest court; creating a new vacancy to be filled by President Trump.
Kennedy revealed his decision in a letter delivered to President Trump Wednesday afternoon, saying he was prepared to step down from the court.
“For a member of the legal profession, it is the highest of honors to serve on this Court,” he wrote. “Please permit me by this letter to express my profound gratitude for having had the privilege to seek in each case how best to know, interpret and defend the Constitution and the laws that must always conform to its mandates and promises.”
“Justice Kennedy, 81, has long been the decisive vote in many closely divided cases. His retirement gives President Trump the opportunity to fundamentally change the course of the Supreme Court,” writes the New York Times.
