Dear fellow MoveOn member,
In 2016, Senator Mitch McConnell had this to say after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia prompted President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice."1
The same should hold true about Donald Trump's replacement for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy which means that the Senate must reject Trump's nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
A nominee like Brett Kavanaugh is a threat to reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and Americans' right to health care.2
Furthermore, Trump and his campaign staff are under investigation for foreign collusion with Russia.3
Trump should not have a say about the next lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court considering these circumstances.
