President Trump just made his announcement for his Supreme Court nominee... Judge Brett Kavanagh, a well-qualified candidate who fits the President' campaign pledge of nominating individuals who will interpret the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.
Here's how Kavanaugh described his judicial philosophy last night:
"My judicial philosophy is straightforward. A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written. And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent."
+ + Attack Campaign Already Under Way
Of course, it didn't take long for the attacks to begin. Moments after the pick was announced, a drummed-up "protest" took place at the Supreme Court with pre-printed "Stop Kavanaugh" signs. DNC Chair Tom Perez said in a statement that Kavanaugh "should not be allowed anywhere near" the Supreme Court. And Democrat Senators were already announcing their opposition.
Even BEFORE the nomination the attacks had begun. One report showed college students calling the nominee "racist" and another group had already launched a Facebook event entitled "No Fascist Supreme Court" that pictured the unknown nominee in a Ku Klux Klan hood.
We wish this could be a civil discussion, but sadly, the President's opponents are already on the attack. And pundits are beginning to pressure the key swing GOP Senators who hold all the cards.
