Sunday’s protests come as increasing numbers of Democrats in the Senate—many citing the possible criminal conduct of President Trump—are calling on their Republican colleagues to postpone Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, currently set to begin on September 4.
In a letter sent to committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) late last week, Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee said that, “Given the possibility of criminal wrongdoing by the President, doubts that Judge Kavanaugh believes a president can even be investigated, and the unprecedented lack of transparency regarding this nominee’s record, we should not move forward with hearings on September 4th.”
Importantly, the senators added, “there is no legitimate reason for the Senate to rush this nomination and fail to perform its constitutional duty,” they said. “This is especially true, when the President, who faces significant legal jeopardy, chose the one candidate who has consistently and clearly expressed doubt as to whether a sitting president can be investigated or indicted for criminal wrongdoing.”
