Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Tuesday, saying Brett Kavanaugh’s previous comments about “shielding” a sitting President from a criminal investigation disqualifies him from serving.
Schumer was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked to comment on Kavanaugh’s earlier writings that stated putting a sitting President on trial would likely “cripple the federal government.”
“He has said the president shouldn’t be investigated,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said of Kavanaugh on MSNBC. “How is he going to react if [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller needs a subpoena, if Mueller needs some other action?”
Kavanaugh’s initial comments appeared in a 2009 article in the Minnesota Law Review, stating “Congress might consider a law exempting a President—while in office—from criminal prosecution and investigation, including from questioning by criminal prosecutors or defense counsel.”
“The indictment and trial of a sitting President, moreover, would cripple the federal government, rendering it unable to function with credibility in either the international or domestic arenas,” he added.

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.

ELLISON EXPLODES: DNC Deputy Suggests Trump PAID OFF Supreme Court Justice
Deputy Director of the DNC Keith Ellison unloaded on the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to uphold the President’s ‘travel ban’ Tuesday, bizarrely suggesting Trump bribed Justice Neil Gorsuch ahead of the ruling.
Ellison was speaking with CNN when he was asked to comment on the court’s historic ruling; saying the decision will ultimately end up in the “dustbin of history.”
Rep. Keith Ellison reacts to the travel ban ruling: “As long as [Trump] puts a very thin veneer of national security on top of all that discrimination and racism, they will buy it. In other words, as long as a pig has some lipstick on it, it's fine." https://t.co/TCZUC1dYCN pic.twitter.com/S4ad1mAa3z

“This is going to enliven us. This is going to inspire us to push even harder,” said Ellison.
“It just proves that if you steal and rip-off a Supreme Court Justice, then you can try and jam any kind of nasty, racist, ugly policy you can down the throats of the American people,” he added.
