Democrats: Trump Must Withdraw Kavanaugh Appointment Because He's Under Investigation on Suspicion of... Something.

Hmm, who else appointed Supreme Court justices even though he was under investigation by a special counsel?

Not Barack Obama! The Democrats refused to appoint any for him. They'd learned their lesson.

But go back a little further...

David Harsanyi:

[M]uch like their ideal Supreme Court, Democrats have set about fabricating brand new extra-constitutional standards that happen to always align with their partisan aims. Their latest concocted stipulation states that anyone nominated by a president under suspicion of criminality becomes "illegitimate."

...

Much of this, of course, is typical Trump-era hyperbole. None of these senators were going to vote for Kavanaugh anyway, and none of these pundits are going accept the validity of the Supreme Court that adheres to the Constitution as written. Yet, it's still worth noting the vacuousness of their arguments....

Then again, the idea that mere suspicion of criminality is enough to stop a president from engaging in his constitutional duty is a completely new one, designed, as most things these days, only for Trump.

The Whitewater investigation went on for nearly 3,000 days. Did that mean that any court with Stephen Breyer, nominated after an independent investigation was launched, became "fundamentally illegitimate?" I mean, that investigation ended up convicting 15 friends and allies of the Clintons for over 40 crimes, including felonies like fraud, bribery and embezzlement. Talk about a "cloud of suspicion." Clinton himself was impeached, not on campaign finance charges, but on obstruction of justice and perjury.

And those crimes occurred while he was a sitting President -- not a candidate -- and therefore chief law enforcement officer of the nation, I might add.
