• Whitbeck: No Trump Nominee Would Be Good Enough for Hypocrite Kaine

    — No jurist nominated by Donald Trump would ever be good enough for Tim Kaine —

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Tim Kaine’s announcement of his decision to filibuster Judge Gorsuch’s nomination the U.S. Supreme Court is as unsurprising as it is disappointing. No justice, no matter how well qualified, no matter how mainstream, would ever pass muster with Tim Kaine.”

    “Just a few months ago, Tim Kaine was ready to blow up the filibuster in the Senate to see that Hillary Clinton’s appointments got a vote. But President Trump’s nominees fail a basic test for Tim Kaine- they were nominated by Donald Trump.”

    “I hope that Tim Kaine will recognize his own hypocrisy here and abandon this sour grapes, knee-jerk opposition to this well-qualified future Associate Justice.”
