‘Morning Joe’: If Kavanaugh’s Confirmed Without an FBI Probe, He’ll Forever Have an ‘Asterisk By His Name’

‘For the rest of time, as long as Judge Kavanaugh and then Justice Kavanaugh is on the supreme Court, there will be an asterisk next to his name’

EXCERPT:

GEIST: "Because if they go through with some kind of a hearing on Monday, it’s not conclusive, if Dr. Ford and Democrats think it’s a sham, they’ve pushed through the vote, they’ve put Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. For the rest of time, as long as Judge Kavanaugh and then Justice Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court, there will be an asterisk next to his name and Democrats will question everything he ever does, every opinion he ever writes, every decision he ever makes, because of what’s happening right now in front of us."
SCARBOROUGH: “A lifetime appointment. And yes, there will be an asterisk next to his name because Republicans wouldn’t wait another week to ten days. We are still in September.”
