Schumer Demands Kavanaugh Postponement

In a desperate bid to prevent Trump from stacking the Court against reinterpretation of the U.S. Constitution for years to come, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling for the Senate Judiciary Committee to postpone hearings for Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Why? Because in the words of Schumer: “The president, identified as an unidentified co-conspirator of a federal crime, an accusation made not by a political enemy but by the closest of his own confidants, is on the verge of making a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, a court that may some day soon determine the extent of the president’s legal jeopardy.” Translation: we need to stop a conservative nominee, and, look, there’s a squirrel!
