It's not supposed to work like this.

During an CNN interview on Tuesday morning, White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah did not deny an NBC report that outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy “received assurances” from President Trump that if he retired, Judge Brett Kavanaugh — one of Kennedy’s former clerks — would be nominated to be his replacement.

Asked repeatedly if some sort of deal between Trump and Kennedy was struck before Kennedy announced his retirement, Shah dodged, saying things like “I’m not going to read out private conversations that Justice Kennedy had with either members of the White House or the president,” and, “Justice Kennedy can speak for himself.” But what Shah didn’t do is deny the NBC report.

If NBC’s report is accurate, it means Kennedy would effectively have been given control over a SCOTUS seat for 60 years — the 30 years he served, and the 30 or so the 53-year-old Kavanaugh will likely serve on the court if confirmed.

At another point during the CNN interview, Shah was asked if Trump was familiar with an article Kavanaugh’s wrote that could become relevant to SCOTUS as special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Trump campaign unfolds — a 2009 law review article in which Kavanaugh argued that sitting presidents are above the law.

There's more--much more. So much for the FAKE NEWS theme song from the RW.

Your latest looney Liberal wet dream just evaporated.

They are all doing it now. Simply reporting fake news and then retracting it when it gets uncovered. Kinda like apologizing after shooting your neighbors cow.

Why are you people surprised at this? You boys set the precedent, now shut up and enjoy it.
You're upset that someone is "slinging mud" for political reasons? The guys that voted in TRUMP? ...
I expect the Democrats to grand stand and slander Kavenaugh. I expect pretty much all of the Democrats to block him. I expect in the end it will come down to two Republican: Lisa Murkowsky and Susan Collins.

I have yet to see anything from NBC on this.

Seems the right is claiming NBC released a story that it did not.

Unless something changes, it's just the right wing, Russian helped fake news at it again.

I can't find this either, and I went searching.

I was just listening to a program called "As It Happens" on CBC radio in the car. It is a current affairs thing where they talk with a experts in a variety of areas. Today the had William J Snape III on. He is a law professor at American University Washington and he was not at all complementary to Kavanaugh.

His basic bitch was that he is too chummy with big business, anti-environment and anti-science.

You can listen to the interview at: https://cbc.ca/listen/shows/as-it-ha...gment/15555890

My browser is telling me that this link will steal my personal data and closed it. That's interesting.

Wow, just turned on my VPN and still had to jump through hoops, but I finally got there. Somebody does not want this heard. That's crazy. Looks like the trumpettes are restricting info.

I've never tried going there other than directly through their main site. When I tried the link, all it said is that it wasn't secure and not a private site.

I'm not sure why.
