Trump’s Supreme Court pick weighed in on 2 thorny issues that could be pertinent to the president
Brett Kavanaugh, who President Donald Trump nominated to replace the retiring Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy, previously contributed to a 1998 report that made a case for President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
This experience has shaped Kavanaugh’s belief that presidents should not be indicted or distracted by investigations while in office.
“Whether the Constitution allows indictment of a sitting President is debatable,” he has said.
Kavanaugh instead believes impeachment is the proper way to deal with a president’s serious and “dastardly” misbehavior.
