President Donald Trump sounded off on the Democrats’ treatment of the newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as he got ready to board Air Force One with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Monday.
“I’ve been hearing that now they’re thinking about impeaching a brilliant jurist, a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats using the Democrats’ lawyers, and now they want to impeach him,” Trump said. “I’ve heard this from many people. I think it’s an insult to the American public.”
Trump added that Democrats will be directly affected during the midterm elections next month by how they handled the Kavanaugh confirmation process.
“I think you’re going to see a lot of things happen on November 6th that would not have happened before,” Trump said. “The American public has seen this charade, has seen this dishonesty by the Democrats.”
The President doubled down on how he feels it’s wrong to consider impeaching his Supreme Court nominee — who was the “top scholar, top student, top intellect” – when he “did nothing wrong.”
“It was all made up. It was fabricated. And it’s a disgrace,” Trump said. “And I think it’s going to really show you something come November 6th.”
Trump concluded his comments to reporters outside the White House by saying he thinks “a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican” because he has “many friends that are Democrats.”
