Durbin, Duckworth weigh in on Kavanaugh

By Bill Cameron, WLS-AM News

(CHICAGO) Dick Durbin is one of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee who will grill Kavanaugh in his confirmation hearings. Durbin’s against Kavanaugh because he says too far right and would play defense for Trump.

“Here’s a presidential tweet you’ll never read,” says Durbin, “Just in the nick of time, the president found a supreme court nominee who’s on record saying the president should not be distracted with criminal investigations and prosecutions while he’s in office.”


Durbin’s Illinois colleague Tammy Duckworth says if Kavanaugh hopes to win her support, he’s got to be “independent and not simply a rubber stamp for Trump’s whims.”
