Skip to comments.Dems wage war on Kavanaugh, court: New battles over legitimacy, impeachment, recusal
Posted on 10/08/2018 11:48:07 AM PDT by jazusamo
The narrow confirmation of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend marked a major political victory for President Trump and the beginning of a new battle for Democrats, who are now shifting their message to threaten possible impeachment against the newest high court justice and question the legitimacy of the Supreme Court itself.
After a grueling confirmation fight that included graphic sexual misconduct allegations which the nominee denied, Kavanaugh was confirmed Saturday on 50-48 vote. His ceremonial swearing-in will be held Monday evening.
But as he joins the court, replacing retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, prominent Democrats signal the fight over his seat and the court itself will extend well beyond next month's midterms.
"Now, they want to impeach him. ... It's an insult to the American public," Trump said Monday, still fuming over the confirmation process and predicting Republican candidates would only benefit from the controversy in the midterms.
Democrats, though, maintain the fight is energizing their core. "We will not stop marching, we will not stop fighting," DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement.
Over the weekend, former Attorney General Eric Holder said the courts legitimacy should be brought into question with the addition of Kavanaugh.
With the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the process which led to it, (and the treatment of Merrick Garland), the legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned. The Court must now provethrough its workthat it is worthy of the nations trust, Holder tweeted, referring to former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee whose confirmation process was blocked by Republicans in 2016.

Democrats in DC, leftists across the country and the enemedia are so unhinged they're making fools of themselves and even liberal Alan Dershowitz knows it.
Good keep it up. Start running anti Kavanugh ads in all your close congressional district races Dems. I mean if it so working for you right now, why stop?
If the Democrats want to up the ante, we can as well. If they impeach Kavanaugh, then when we’re in power again, we’ll impeach their entire bench.
Democrats can fold it five ways and shove it where the sun don’t shine.
Demon possessed folks never give trying to destroy good.
Exactly, decent people are fed up with this unhinged behavior.
"The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that well end up being Venezuela. This country would end up being Venezuela. I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting voting Republican on Nov. 6," Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for a law enforcement event in Florida.
President Trump has drawn the line in our political sand and thrown this gauntlet down re future elections!
They’ve just got so much invested in those “pussy hats”, they’ve GOT to get some use out of them....
You are right they are making fools of themselves, but unfortunately they have a significant amount of power and influence.
These cultural Marxists must all be stopped - now. Disagreement is one thing, but sowing discord and chaos is quite another.
This election next month is another important milestone.
So sick of these psychopaths is isn’t funny.
BRILLIANT statement by the President.
I hope he hammers this line at every rally from now to election day
President Trump is right on!
dems are sore losers, and do not accept the way the Constitutional process works. They should not be allowed to vote or hold office.
BK starts WORK tomorrow:-)
Time to probe sotomayor and kagan.
I am 100% sure we can link them to drinking and debauchery in their teens.
100% It is SEARED in my conviction.
Democrats throw impotent temper tantrum.
Democrats, though, maintain the fight is energizing their core. “We will not stop marching, we will not stop fighting,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement.
Good. Please do. Be very loud and vocal about it. Make it the number one issue for the next 4 weeks. Please. Pretty please. With sugar on top.
Dems are the biggest babies. They didn’t get their way so now they want to take all the marbles and go home.
They all need a good whoopin’ with a belt like any spoiled brat.
Spare the rod... end up with a dem baby.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Are the Rats are setting up to have a state or city to defy a ruling by the SC? They are doing so by branding the highest court as illegitimate.
