Senate should not rush to confirm Kavanaugh

To the editor:

On Feb. 23, 2016, the Judiciary Committee penned a letter stating they would withhold consent on any nominee made by President Barack Obama. This was before anyone was named.

Now President Donald Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the court, and Republicans are racing to push him through. They wonder why the Democrats balk. This man believes the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Affordable Care Act are unconstitutional and is against a woman’s right to choose. He also believes a president should be exempt from investigations and criminal prosecution.

How convenient for Trump. Kavanaugh even thinks if a president doesn’t agree with a law he can ignore it. That is not a democracy, and no one is above the law. No nominations should be considered until the Mueller investigation is complete.
