BOOKER BREAKDOWN: The Senator Says SUSPEND Court Pick Until AFTER Russia Probe

Originally published at:

Senator Cory Booker hinted at the Democrats’ potential plot to block President Trump’s future Supreme Court Pick Friday, saying the White House should only nominate a candidate after the Mueller probe wraps up.

Booker was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked to weigh-in on Justice Anthony Kennedy’s recent retirement announcement, saying Trump should wait because he’s still the “subject of a criminal investigation.”

“This president is the subject of a criminal investigation,” Booker said. “Here you have a president that’s making a whole lot of loyalty tests and other things from people.”

“Should that person be able to right now, while this criminal investigation’s going on, be allowed to make an appointment? I say no,” Booker added.
