The news cycle is punishing – that’s on purpose – but try to keep this top of mind: the president’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen pled guilty to 8 criminal counts. He testified that he paid hush money to women on Trump’s behalf, with the goal of influencing the outcome of the 2016 election.
The president is a criminal co-conspirator. He has nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh has argued that a sitting president should not be “distracted” by investigations into his or her crimes. Trump has found a judge that will overlook his treasonous acts.
Under the circumstances, Kavanaugh’s hearings, scheduled for September 4th, need to be suspended.
ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
Some good news for a change: both our Senators sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Call Senators Feinstein and Harris and ask the Committee to suspend Kavanaugh’s hearings. There’s a great script here. If you’d prefer not to make a call, ResistBot is your friend.
