Schumer: Trump Nominated Kavanaugh Because He’s ‘Worried’ Mueller Will Try to Subpoena Him

‘Trump knows that Kavanaugh will be a barrier to preventing that investigation from going there’

EXCERPT:

SCHUMER: "With this president, who has had so little respect for the rule of law, who has shown he will roll over democratic norms, it’s no wonder he chose Judge Kavanaugh whose views on this issue are more extreme than just about anyone else on that list. Senator McConnell told the President there were other nominees whom he could confirm more easily. Why did the President stick with Kavanaugh? Because he’s worried that Mr. Mueller will go to the court and ask that the President be subpoenaed and ask to do other things necessary to move the investigation forward, and President Trump knows that Kavanaugh will be a barrier to preventing that investigation from going there. Bottom line, folks, the ramifications of this battle will last for a generation and more. I’m going to fight this nomination with everything I’ve got. The American people must join us and speak loudly, clearly and now."
