Chuck Schumer stood in front of a camera and made a gigantic fool of himself
The Democrat freak out over President Trump selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee is in full effect.
Liberals across America are tripping over themselves to offer up the most insane opposition to Judge Kavanaugh.
Chuck Schumer took his turn at bat opposing Judge Kavanaugh when he appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
The New York Democrat launched into a loony conspiracy theory about Trump nominating Judge Kavanaugh because a 2009 Minnesota Law Review article Judge Kavanaugh wrote stated Congress should pass laws shielding Presidents from criminal investigations.
On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated he wouldn’t be surprised if Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s views on presidents facing prosecution while in office “was very important to Donald Trump.”
Co-host Willie Geist asked, “Senator, do you believe that President Trump selected Judge Kavanaugh because of Judge Kavanaugh’s views on presidential power and his position in that law review paper where he said that presidents should not be subject to prosecution while in office?”
Schumer answered, “I certainly believe, he was the judge, probably of the 25 — they all would repeal Roe. They all would repeal ACA. But on this issue, the Mueller issue, which came up after the vetting by these two groups, he’s probably the most extreme, and it wouldn’t surprise me if that was very important to Donald Trump. Knowing Donald Trump, and I have no proof, do you think he didn’t inquire about this either directly or indirectly? Knowing Donald Trump, what do you think?”
Judge Kavanaugh never wrote that Presidents were immune from investigation or that they are a kingly figure.
He merely said that Congress should act in the manner prescribed under the Constitution.
Trump placing Judge Kavanaugh on the court was not some far-flung conspiracy theory to shut down the Mueller probe.
The President decided Judge Kavanaugh was the best candidate for the position.
