Charges of illegitimacy and calls for impeachment and recusal are just some of the new battles being faced by now-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in the wake of the debunked sexual assault allegations. Even high-level political players, such as former U.S. Attorney General Eric “Fast n Furious” Holder are getting involved. Holder tweeted concern about Kavanaugh’s “legitimacy” since former President Barack Obama did not get his nominee Merrick Garland confirmed. President Trump has called the ongoing hostility and dogged efforts by the left “an insult to the American public.” It’s not just an insult to the republic however. It’s an insult to decency and the intelligence of the American people. Naked partisanship and scorched-earth politics are the very reason why the best people in the country rarely want to serve in public office. That’s a crying shame.

The narrow confirmation of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend marked a major political victory for President Trump – and the beginning of a new battle for Democrats, who are now shifting their message to threaten possible impeachment against the newest high court justice and question the legitimacy of the Supreme Court itself.
After a grueling confirmation fight that included graphic sexual misconduct allegations which the nominee denied, Kavanaugh was confirmed Saturday on 50-48 vote. His ceremonial swearing-in will be held Monday evening.
But as he joins the court, replacing retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, prominent Democrats signal the fight over his seat and the court itself will extend well beyond next month’s midterms.
“Now, they want to impeach him. … It’s an insult to the American public,” Trump said Monday, still fuming over the confirmation process and predicting Republican candidates would only benefit from the controversy in the midterms.
