Dems Infighting over Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh
article appeared in Breitbart on July 14th
Democrats are fighting with each other over how to oppose
President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh and family
Far left, progressive
activists are butting heads with center-left Democrats on the fence about
opposing Kavanaugh because of his stellar credentials,
including a 12-year stint as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.
Circuit and an undergraduate and law degree from Yale University.
While some Senate
Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are taking a hard
line stance against voting for Kavanaugh, some red-state Senate Democrats such
as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) are striking
a balancing act between supporting their party and getting re-elected.
Manchin tweeted this week that he has a “constitutional obligation”
to consider Trump’s Supreme court nominee:
Heitkamp announced this week her willingness to “thoroughly review
and vet” Kavanaugh’s record despite the actions of her colleagues and actions
of outside groups to oppose Kavanaugh on partisan grounds.
The uncertainty of
these red-state Senate Democrats on Kavanaugh’s nomination is causing
frustration among the more progressive wing of the Democratic Party.
Neil Sroka, a
spokesman for the left wing advocacy group Democracy for America, told the Hill that his group is pushing for
Senate Democrats to be united in opposing Trump’s “extremist nominee.”

“We need to be training
all of our firepower on Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Sen. Susan Collins
(R-ME), and we don’t need to be wasting one shred of energy trying to push a
Democrat in the right direction on this extremist nominee,” Sroka
said. “There’s a great deal of impatience amongst the grassroots for
senators to get off the fence on Kavanaugh.”
Murkowski and Collins are considered to be potential swing votes on Kavanaugh’s
activist groups cited concerns over how Kavanaugh would gut the Affordable Care
Act and overturn Roe v. Wade as reasons they are frustrated with
establishment Democrats for even considering Kavanaugh.
“We’re looking for
more clean statements of opposition from more senators,” said Elizabeth
Beavers, associate policy director at the left wing progressive group
Lisa Murkowski, RINO, Alaska
“We already know
plenty about Kavanaugh,” she added. “In order to get on Trump’s shortlist,
these people had to show willingness to gut reproductive rights and show
hostility to the Affordable Care Act.”
Breitbart News Senior
Legal Editor Ken Klukowski called the statements from some of these progressive
groups “ironic,” since some conservative groups have questioned Kavanaugh’s
“Some pro-life groups
have wondered if Kavanaugh has shown enough pro-life sentiment and others in
the conservative base have questioned if he ducked out of an opportunity to
strike down Obamacare,” said Klukowski. “These statements are already starting
to smack of desperation when directed against Judge Kavanaugh.”
Even though the
Democratic National Committee (DNC) is warning its followers to oppose
Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, some DNC political operatives
seemed to be confused about which judge the party was opposing.
The DNC published
a blog post on Tuesday afternoon with the caption “Judge Kavanaugh should not
be allowed anywhere near our nation’s highest bench”—but with a photo of
Trump’s runner-up pick to the Supreme Court, Judge Thomas Hardiman.
After party officials
rushed to tweet out the link, they deleted the social media post and changed
