Using his executive privilege to subvert a fair confirmation hearing for the next supreme court judge, is par for the course when it comes to Trump's corrupt approach to government.
To make sure that Kavanaugh's confirmed, Trump stopped the release of 100,000 pages of his time as a lawyer during the Bush Administration.
Stepping in at the last moment, just days before the hearings started, Trump elected to hide 100,000 pages of Kavanaugh's records from the American public. Not only is this move unprecedented in the history of presidential norms, it smells like a cover up.
Enabling Trump's under-handed assault against the confirmation process is a collection of jellyfish that claim to be Republicans in congress. With their help, any chance of the proper scrutiny of Kavanaugh's records sunk into the swamp that Donny's made.
Most of the records withheld "reflect deliberations and candid advice concerning the selection and nomination of judicial candidates, the confidentiality of which us critical to any president's ability to carry out core constitutional executive function," wrote William A. Burck, a lawyer for former President Bush.
According to senate Democrats this is the first time a sitting president has exerted executive privilege under the Presidential Records Act in order to prevent documents from going to Congress during a Supreme Court confirmation process.
Trump has proven to be a liar, a con man, and a cheat in nineteen short months of fouling the Oval Office. His criminal past is catching up with him. From the courts of New York City to the Federal Special Investigation into Trump's ties to Russian and campaign meddling, he faces a spectacular downfall.
Selecting a supreme court nominee and getting him confirmed at this point in time (when Trump is an un-indicted accomplice to his lawyers felony conviction for campaign fraud and violations), would be a travesty of justice the court may never be able to overcome.
For that reason alone, the confirmation process needs to stop until Trump's been cleared of a felony(s) in the ongoing New York investigation.
To double down on that thought, everyone needs to see what the result of Mueller's investigation is before letting him stack our Supreme Court with minions beholden to himself.
The fix may be in, but the fat lady hasn't starting singing yet.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
