[FULL TITLE] NBC: We Hear From A Single Source That Kennedy Negotiated His Retirement To Get Kavanaugh; Update: That Is Garbage
Did Anthony Kennedy cut a secret deal with Donald Trump back in November to have Brett Kavanaugh replace him on the Supreme Court? Or do media outlets need to verify claims from single sources before taking them public? NBCs Leigh Caldwell and Frank Thorp hear the pick has been locked in since November, and that the drama over the last two weeks was sheer atmospherics:
Leigh Ann Caldwell ✔ @LACaldwellDC Replying to @LACaldwellDC Furthermore, the five names Trump added to his list of Federalist Approved judges last November was to get Kavanaugh on that list. The other four names were considered cover, per source. In other words: the decision has been baked for a while: W/ @frankthorp 6:15 AM - Jul 10, 2018

Eat it, Lefties.
One always mentors a successor. Why would this be any different?
Easy to prove or disprove ...
...they just need to name the source.
Tells you all you need to know.
Maybe, but Trump did say that Kennedy recommended Kavanaugh.
It would not be a surprise if Kennedy agreed to retire if Kavaugh
was appointed. Nor would there be any problem with that...if
it happened at all. A big so what.
Maybe fake but I would not be at all surprised that Kennedy would do this
Oh, my goodness!!!!
Am I supposed to believe NBC????
Phake news yet again? Implied source? Unnamed source? What we think source?
Fine by me.
The most surprising thing about that chart is that the j@ck@$$ party is only 51%.
This is all they have? This is obviously garbage, but it doesn’t matter. Thousands of those screaming hysterical maniacs will repeat it, and thousands more will believe it. And their vote counts as much as mine.
If true, so what? Nothing wrong with that.
Appears to be sound succession planning, just like in any well run business.
I only care who Trump picks next. ;)
This is common practice by retiring SCOTUS justices. Happens all the time in the private sector as well.
What I dont like are the rumors Juan McCains wife will replace him.
Fake as hell.
Kennedy is not that STOOOOOPID.
Trump could agree to this and then change his mind
one minute after the ink is dry on his resignation letter.
NBC functions at the mental level of a third-grader apparently.
