Why So Many People Are Freaking Out About Brett Kavanaugh
As Vox’s Dylan Matthews wrote in a profile of the nominee, “He’s a veteran of every conservative cause you can imagine, from the 2000 Florida recount to the fight against Obamacare.”
“Kavanaugh would almost certainly fall to the right of Anthony Kennedy as a Supreme Court justice, and enable a rightward shift in the court’s jurisprudence for years or decades to come,” Matthews continued. “Even more concerning for liberals, he has suggested enhancing the president’s power to block criminal and civil actions against him, a potentially worrisome position when the president nominating him is under investigation and facing multiple lawsuits.”
“This nomination is a 100 percent political decision, and one that will have a profoundly negative effect on the lives of working people of this country for decades to come if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) wrote in an email to supporters Monday night.
“Kavanaugh’s record has made it clear he will use his position on the court to protect corporations at the expense of workers, to allow corporations and the wealthy to buy elections, and to undermine voting rights,” Sanders added.
