Regardless of the source, a potential back room deal is extremely unethical.  It does warrant further investigation. 

 

“On Tuesday, I spoke with Jeff Hauser, a former Justice Department official who runs the Revolving Door Project at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, who noted that, since the failure of Abe Fortas’ nomination to be chief justice in 1968 (Fortas, a friend of President Lyndon B. Johnson, had numerous ethical problems), a norm has been in place limiting communication between justices and the executive branch. It’s particularly important given how often the court has to rule not just on issues on which the administration takes a position, but on cases directly impacting the president’s powers and privileges.”

They have an agenda.  Probably best to read some of those news outlets that are more centered.

They have right bias sites to. I looked at a few. You should read them. Did you know the Govt. has been hiding the total cure for Cancer for over 70 years. It was discovered under Hitler in Germany. By the article there is no reason for anyone to have Cancer since there is a simple cure for it, and the cost in about nothing. Gail you have discovered something that will really cut medical costs. This is the place to get your medical info from now on.

  The Republican Party is in tatters as it sold its sense of ethics and proverbial soul to donald.    And no, I don't have to have any respect for that party or their members who sat on their thumbs and said nothing.

No, it is indeed not supposed to work like this! And then you have McConnell preaching to the Dems. treat Kavanaugh fairly? Why in hell should they when the Dems Supreme Court pick was stolen from them?  Outrageous on both counts! Dems. need to call this out, but will they???
