Dear Senator: Vote No on Kavanaugh

Dear Senator,

 

Our President is under criminal investigation for colluding with Russia and tampering with the 2016 election. In his investigation, Robert Mueller has so far indicted Trump’s foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos who has pleaded guilty, his national security adviser Michael Flynn who has pleaded guilty, his campaign chair Paul Manafort who was found guilty, his campaign aid, Rick Gates who pleaded guilty, thirteen Russian nationals, Richard Pinedo, Alex van der Zwaan, Konstantin Kilimnik, and 12 Russian GRU officers. Currently, the Senate is holding hearings to confirm President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, which is a lifetime appointment. I find it alarming that Mr. Kavanaugh has made past statements that the President was immune to criminal investigation. On September 5, 2018 during a Senate hearing Senator Feinstein of California asked him if the President of the United States should be required to respond to a subpoena, and he refused to answer her question. I find this very alarming. We know that in six years Mr. Trump will no longer serve as President, and his tenure is very likely to end prior to that time; however, Mr. Kavanaugh’s appointment is for life, meaning that for the next forty years, he may never hold Presidents accountable for criminal acts, and this is not acceptable. Mr. Kavanaugh’s appointment serves as a conflict of interest. I believe that Mr. Kavanaugh’s appointment is the Republican Party’s short-term solution that will cause long-term problems. I recommend that the Senate wait until after Mueller’s investigation is finished to resume these hearings.
