Steve Schmidt Demolishes ‘Disgraceful’ GOP For Pushing Kavanaugh’s ‘Sewage’ Into The Supreme Court

Conservative commentator Steve Schmidt on Thursday lambasted Senate Republicans for ramming through Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against him, calling Kavanaugh “poisonous” and the process “disgraceful.”

During an appearance on MSNBC, the former GOP strategist, who left his party this summer over President Donald Trump, said he had low expectations for the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to clear up sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh and blamed the senators for overseeing the degradation of their committee and the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Absolute utter chaos, the degradation of our most important institution,” Schmidt said. “What we’ll see today is a nonfunctioning, disgraceful Congress. What we’ll see is an assault and a vandalizing of the Supreme Court as an institution.”

He said the confirmation process had exposed a deep rot within democratic institutions, and Schmidt said Kavanaugh would poison the court for as long as he served.

“Zero-sum partisan politics — all of it washes sewage on the marble edifice of the Supreme Court, a vital institution for the preservation of our democracy, for the rule of law, and it’s just being trashed,” Schmidt said.

“No matter what, let’s say Kavanaugh does get through,” he continued. “He can sit up there to the year 2058, 40 years from now. There will always be a cloud over this. This has been handled atrociously.”
