ABC Worries About Prosecuting Trump With Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court (NewsBusters)

During Tuesday’s World News Tonight, ABC revealed their key concerns with Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. Along with speculation of him helping to overturn Roe v. Wade, the network boosted Democratic worries that efforts to prosecute the President via the special counsel would end.

Sensationalist anchor David Muir even spelled it out when he introduced the segment. “Judge Kavanaugh’s views on abortion and on what he said about criminal investigations involving a sitting president will also be under the microscope,” he told viewers. “But, do Democrats have the math to do anything about this nomination?”

After sharing liberal concerns about Roe v. Wade possibly being overturned because of a more conservative Supreme Court, chief White House correspondent Jon Karl highlighted Kavanaugh’s very public record. “With Kavanaugh, there's unlikely to be many secrets he has a massive public record, from his 12 years as a federal judge, his experience as an official in the Bush White House, and as a key lieutenant of independent counsel Kenneth Starr during the investigation of Bill Clinton,” he recalled.
