As Townhall is reporting:
Interesting coming from a progressive, remember that it was progressives who have used the courts to shape the laws of this country. Our courts were not created to do this but then again the Dems have never been keen on following the Constitution.
"Republicans have already destroyed the independence of our judicial system and turned it into yet another partisan battlefield," former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) declares in a new op-ed for the USA Today.
Franken believes he has exposed Republicans' agenda in how they have handled the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings this week. For instance, why did Chairman Chuck Grassley allow a document dump on the nominee the night before the hearings began?
"Why the secrecy?" Franken asks. "Why the rush? Because Republicans are intent on getting a fifth vote on the bench to protect Trump from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation in time for the Supreme Court’s fall term."
Kavanaugh, a "partisan," was nominated "in order to help achieve the Republican Party’s goals," Franken says. He doesn't describe those goals as anything meaningful.
