Should Democrats go scorched earth on Trump's Supreme Court nominee? | The Tylt
Justice Kennedy is retiring and President Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh to take his place. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to oppose Kavanaugh "with everything I have" and urged Democrats to do everything in their power to block his nomination. But Republicans have the majority and can use the same tactics they used to nominate Neil Gorsuch. Democrats shouldn't obstruct, they should cooperate. Should the Democrats block Kavanaugh? ⚖️
Should Democrats go scorched earth on Trump's Supreme Court nominee?
I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same. The stakes are simply too high for anything less.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) July 10, 2018

Brett Kavanaugh's record as a judge and lawyer is clear: hostile to health care for millions, opposed to the CFPB & corporate accountability, thinks Presidents like Trump are above the law – and conservatives are confident that he would overturn Roe v. Wade. I'll be voting no.— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) July 10, 2018
Justice Kennedy is retiring which means I expect Democrats to go SCORCHED EARTH and demand Trump can't appoint his successor until after the 2018 election just like Republicans did with Merrick Garland! RT if you agree— Savannah L. Barker (@savannah_lb) June 27, 2018
Judge Kavanaugh will most likely be confirmed because he is qualified and has excelled on the bench. But in the process he will be vilified and defamed. Americans, however, will notice who the dogs of attack are and will process that.— Bill O'Reilly (@BillOReilly) July 10, 2018
