Donald Trump picked Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court after negotiations with retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Trump is literally trampling over the rule of law with the help of people who are charged to uphold the law.

NBC News’ Geoff Bennett tweeted: “Sources familiar tell NBC that Justice Kennedy had been in negotiations with the Trump team for months over Kennedy’s replacement. Once Kennedy received assurances that it would be Kavanaugh (his former clerk) Kennedy felt comfortable retiring.”

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah did not deny an NBC report during an appearance on CNN on Tuesday. He told John Berman, “I’m not going to read out private conversations that Justice Kennedy had with either members of the White House or the president.” “Justice Kennedy can speak for himself.” In other words, no outright denial.

Donald Trump and the Republicans literally bought another Supreme Court seat. Let that sink in….the coup is complete.
