🚨 #BREAKING: @realDonaldTrump has nominated #BrettKavanaugh to the #SCOTUS seat vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy. 👎🏾 #SaveSCOTUS #WhatsAtStake🚨…
Judge #Kavanaugh has been on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit for over 10 years. He's a member of the Federalist Society. (@FedSoc) (yikes!)
Let's take a look at his record! 🧐 #WhatsAtStake #SaveSCOTUS…
ICYMI: The Federalist Society is “a group of conservatives and libertarians dedicated to reforming the current legal order.” #SCOTUS nominee #BrettKavanaugh is a member. Fun!
Us, listening to @realDonaldTrump's #SCOTUS nominee #BrettKavanaugh wax poetic about how he understands "the importance of equality for all Americans." #ok
Unsurprising: #BrettKavanaugh is conservative, a strict textualist, and clerked for Justice Kennedy. He is an admirer of Justice Scalia & counts Neil Gorsuch as a close friend. #SaveSCOTUS
IN FACT: (Despite his claims otherwise) #Kavanaugh is SO partisan that conservative group @FRCdc, vigorously advocated on behalf of his 2003 nomination.
*We know* nothing's changed. He poses a threat to the #ACA, #ReproRights, & checking executive power.
HOW CONVENIENT: Judge #BrettKavanaugh has argued passionately in law review articles that sitting presidents shouldn't be subject to civil OR criminal charges while in office. #SCOTUSPick #SaveSCOTUS
While serving on the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, #Kavanaugh wrote a lengthy dissent in Sissel v. HHS that would have struck down the #ACA as unconstitutional. #WhatsAtStake #SaveTheACA #SCOTUSPick
You may also remember #BrettKavanaugh from his ruling as part of a 3 judge panel that found an undocumented minor in need of an abortion required a govt-appointed guardian, which delayed her access to necessary care. #WhatsAtStake #SCOTUSPick…
These are just a few of the facts to keep in mind when @realDonaldTrump tells you that this is an independent & fair-minded jurist. #Kavanaugh would not serve the rights of all—particularly not vulnerable groups whose rights may be litigated before #SCOTUS in our lifetimes. 🙅🙅
🚨 We must not confirm a #SCOTUS nominee who could bring 40+ more years of @realDonaldTrump’s values. 🚨

🚨 And we CANNOT confirm any nominee before the November elections!🚨
