According to a new bookby Ruth Marcus, titled, Supreme Ambition: Brett Kavanaugh and the Conservative Takeover, Former Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy‘s support for Kavanaugh was both direct and pivotal–in at least two ways–but it came well before Kavanaugh was nominated.
The books describes a suspicious scene in which Kennedy’s son allegedly met with Kellyanne Conway during a dinner just days after President Donald Trump was inaugurated in order to presumably set the Kavanaugh scheme into motion.
The official ask apparently came in April 2017–immediately after Justice Neil Gorsuch‘s swearing-in ceremony–when Kennedy “requested a private moment with President Trump to deliver a message about the next Supreme Court opening” and “told Trump he should consider another of his former clerks, Brett M. Kavanaugh, who was not on the president’s first two lists of candidates.”
Does it really surprise anyone to learn of yet another corrupt connection between the GOP and the Court’s conservative majority? In 2016 the Chief Justice, who ostensibly cares so much about the Court’s legitimacy, stood by passively as McTurtle stole it.
Earlier this year, Justice Thomas‘s wife lobbied the President about a lawsuit that was before the Court, and to which Trump was a party. This month, Justices Kavanaugh and [Samuel] Alito held a closed-door meeting with a homophobic party to a lawsuit. Now, we learn that a sitting Supreme Court justice used the leverage created by his lifetime appointment to negotiate his chosen successor, which is remarkably corrupt even by the laughable standards of this Court.

Good, decent, Americans need to be careful of the righwingers lies about Trump's corruption. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., said on the first day of public impeachment hearings. “No. 1: Ukraine received the aid. No. 2: There was, in fact, no investigation into Biden.”
Laura "Frau Braun" Ingraham said on her Fox News show, “Remember, Ukraine got its military aid. It was 14 days delayed — big deal. And, remember, Ukraine never made any public statement about any investigation.”
This is how sociopathic Righties are for covering up for a corrupt conman like Trump.
The aid was only released on September 9, 2019 AFTER the whistle-blower became known the day before. The quid pro quo was that Ukraine didn't have to DO the investigation, just announce it via CNN.
Much prefer the past 2018 democratic candidate for that seat, Dylan Ratigan. Cobb looks to be vague, noncommittal and basically centrists. Impeachment won’t be enough to win that very white, older district where most of that demographic views this liberal sh!t show of a fantasy camp going on in Washington with the contempt it deserves. Frankly, I’ve met few people outside the liberal stripe who gives a toss for this goofy bit of televised polititainment programming going on now in Washington.
On the other hand, if you were to take this president to task in any real significant and politically significant way you might listen to Shahid Buttar challenging the speaker of the house. I believe his arguments are stronger for an impeachment case than the current hypocritical one being waged by the liberals.
Much more of a focused on a real and relevant reason to impeach that has more chance of success. Unless, of course, the goal of this impeachment hearing is something other than impeachment.
Or as the previous candidate in the 21st has recently remarked, ‘news is a commodity product now that we, as consumers are consuming. At some point you have to ask yourself what role your playing with consuming and then repeating packaged false narratives?’
If Trump was such a threat to Democracy Rick, why did congress give him more money than the war department ask for in the last budget or are now planning to extend the power of the survelliance act? Seems like an odd thing to do if he’s that big a threat.

The point being, ANYONE is better than a lying right-winger ass-kisser supportive of a criminal POTUS. My suggestion has nothing to do with impeachment as said impeachment will be over and done with by November 2020.
