For months, we've consistently cautioned that the Senate must #PressPause on considering President Trump's SCOTUS nominee until the Special Counsel's investigation ends.
LDF President and Director-Counsel @Sifill_LDF penned an op-ed on our country’s commitment to equal justice under the law and why "it is imperative that the process to replace [Justice Kennedy] not be rushed." #WhatsAtStake #ScotusPick #SCOTUSnominee…
"It's not normal not only because we have a midterm election that is imminent... [but also] because we have a president that is under the cloud of a criminal investigation. We don't know what's going to happen w/ the Mueller investigation" @Sifill_LDF on @amjoyshow. #AMJoy
After Kavanaugh’s nomination, we wrote that the ongoing investigations call into question the legitimacy of this confirmation process, and that nominating a justice to #SCOTUS under these conditions is tantamount to President Trump nominating his own jury.…
When Kavanaugh’s vote was scheduled, we said that partisan rush to push this nominee through without adequate process was particularly irresponsible and inexplicable in light of the Special Counsel’s ongoing investigation. Our statement:
"The stakes are so much higher, certainly for civil rights groups. This is a president who is under a cloud of investigation...who's flirted with the idea of pardoning himself," @Sifill_LDF with @maddow on The Rachel #Maddow Show. #KavanaughSCOTUS #WhatsAtStake
Yesterday’s conviction and guilty plea only reinforce what we’ve said all along: it’s time to #PressPause. Call your senator 202-224-3121 and demand they act to #SaveSCOTUS
