Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is claiming that President Trump’s pick for Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh has to agree to save himself from getting involved in “Trump’s personal financial dealings” and special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
Blumenthal stated, “I’m a no on this nominee. My colleagues should be a no on this nominee unless Judge Kavanaugh specifically commits that he will recuse himself on any issues that involve President Trump’s personal financial dealings or the special counsel.”
“He would be the swing vote. Judge Kavanaugh, if he is a justice, would be the swing vote in deciding whether he can pardon himself—get out of jail free pass. That’s the accountability that will be lost if Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed. Likewise, whether he can be called before a grand jury—whether he can be indicted while he is still president.”
