The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings will begin after Labor Day. In response, activists and concerned citizens gathered around the country on August 26th for a national day of action to tell our Senators: Kavanaugh is WRONG for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh has said that a sitting President should not be prosecuted — not even investigated — which means the President doesn't have to answer questions about possible crimes. Kavanaugh's also hinted that a sitting President shouldn't be sued either, but it doesn't stop there; he still refuses to release documents regarding his voting records. His extreme positions threaten equal rights for all citizens, our environment and our economy.
There’s no doubt: Kavanaugh would rule to attack voting rights and LGBTQ rights, slash environmental protections, gut reproductive rights, and further damage workers’ and immigrant rights. If Senators vote to confirm Kavanaugh, they would cement into place the worst and most dangerous of Donald Trump’s policies and a legacy that will live on for decades after he's gone. Kavanaugh on the court means an end to Roe v Wade; any hope of getting money out of politics; and a Supreme Court which does not back the investigation into Trump's illegal and traitorous activities. Trump's lawyer just pled guilty to two counts of violation of campaign finance laws and said Trump directed him to pay off Stormy Daniels and his other mistress. Furthermore, is it right that a president under investigation gets to pick his own judges? A resounding NO!
🗣 We can NOT have a Supreme Court Justice who thinks the president is above the law. ⚖️
