Today’s Action: SCOTUS hearings begin today – stop the nomination proceedings

A word from our founder: The president’s tweets calling for DOJ to subvert the law to help Republican election chances are his most blatant signal yet that he believes he is above the law. The truth is, until we have a Congress that respects the law, he’s right. (TWEET THAT)

Today’s Action: SCOTUS hearings begin today – stop the nomination proceedings

Despite being two months from midterm elections – and despite personally blocking President Obama’s nomination for the Supreme Court in 2016 for literally this reason – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is launching confirmation hearings today on Trump’s Supreme Court justice nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. McConnell has zero scruples…but there’s now so much more at stake than getting angry that McConnell is a snake (because what else is new).

Trump’s nomination has one clear purpose: to secure a Justice who believes a president should be exempt from criminal investigation. In the wake of a guilty plea by Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime lawyer and fixer, which implicated the president as a co-conspirator in two campaign finance felonies, it would delegitimize our judiciary to allow Trump to reshape the Court before the investigation has concluded.

It is now vital that we not only secure a no-vote on Kavanaugh from our Senators but keep this vote from happening at all until Mueller’s examination of Trump’s crimes is over.

Email or call your Senators and demand they work to slow down and cease all Supreme Court nomination proceedings until the investigation of Trump’s crimes has completed.

What’s at stake, based on Kavanaugh’s extensive record: a Supreme Court Justice who could try to stop Mueller’s work or stymie any repercussions for Trump’s crimes. On top of that: Roe v. Wade, voter rights, immigration rights, net neutrality, LGBTQ rights, gun safety…decades worth of progressive causes lost by this faulty nomination.

Although most of the Democratic caucus in the Senate has made strong statements opposing Kavanaugh, eight Democrats from primarily red states are still undecided and need to be reminded of Democratic values. Meanwhile, Republican so-called moderates Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowsky (R-AK), and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) have NOT yet made statements that they will support Kavanaugh.

But now, all Senators, even Democrats opposing Kavanaugh, will need another phone call from each of us…this time to stop the vote from happening entirely.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they halt Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination proceedings completely until the campaign finance law investigation has concluded.
