Trump’s Supreme Court Finalist Insists Trump Shouldn’t Be Indicted Because It’ll ‘Cripple The Federal Government’

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who is one of the finalists to be nominated by Donald Trump for a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court, insisted that a president shouldn’t be held legally accountable because it would damage the federal government, according to CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Judge Kavanaugh, who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, wrote an article for the Minnesota Law Review which lays out his opinions about indicting a sitting president.

Kavanaugh wrote his argument based on his “experience in the White House and the Justice Department, in the independent counsel’s office, in the judicial branch as a law clerk and now a judge, and as a teacher of separation of powers law.”

“The indictment and trial of a sitting President, moreover, would cripple the federal government, rendering it unable to function with credibility in either the international or domestic arenas. Such an outcome would ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis,” Judge Kavanaugh argued.
