Desperate Democrats Trying To Use Manafort And Cohen As Excuses To Stall Vote On Judge Kavanaugh

Democrats have got nothing else, this is so obviously nothing more than a political stunt. They’re still angry that Trump is getting to pick a second Supreme Court justice and they’ll do anything to stop it.

USA Today reports:

Dems call for delay in Kavanaugh vote after Manafort conviction and Cohen guilty pleas

Democratic senators are using the news of Paul Manafort’s criminal convictions and Michael Cohen’s guilty pleas as a reason to try to delay a confirmation vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, announced Wednesday that she was cancelling her meeting with Kavanaugh because President Donald Trump “does not deserve” a meeting with his nominee after Tuesday’s news about Manafort and Cohen. She called Trump “an unindicted co-conspirator,” apparently referring to the Cohen case.

Cohen, who was Trump’s personal attorney, pleaded guilty to lying about his income to evade income taxes, lying to banks to obtain loans and making illegal contributions to benefit Trump’s campaign. Manafort, who is Trump’s former campaign chairman, was convicted of eight counts of tax and bank fraud.

Pure political posturing. It’s not going to work, either.
