It seems that others agree with the President. A constitutional law attorney agreed because qualified persons will not want to subject themselves to uncorroborated and unsubstantiated attacks.
President Trump said the media scrutiny surrounding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination on whether he sexually assaulted a girl in high school is not only taking down “one of the highest quality people he has ever met,” but the “circus” will no doubt impede future federal judge hiring.
During a press conference in New York on Wednesday, Trump said that he had more than 140 judges waiting in the wings for the prestigious positions of not only being a Supreme Court justice but also a federal circuit and district judge. However, since the Kavanaugh allegations, he says a majority have likely been “scared” off.
“People are going to be scared because we could say it about you 35 years ago,” Trump said, referring to the now-multiple allegations against Kavanaugh during his high school and college days.
He said prior to this “high level CON GAME” being played out by the media and Democrats alike, everybody aspired to be a federal judge.
