Far Left Senator Files RESTRAINING ORDER Against McConnell To Stop Kavanaugh Vote

Last week we reported that Oregon senator Jeff Merkley filed a lawsuit against Trump to try to derail the Kavanaugh nomination. Now the wacked out, far left senator Merkley has filed a restraining order in federal court in a grandstanding attempt to try to stop the confirmation vote. He’s even gone as far as calling the entire confirmation process “unconstitutional.”

Last week, I sued President Donald Trump & Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to stop the unconstitutional Kavanaugh…

Oregon Public Broadcasting reports:

Oregon Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley filed an emergency motion late Tuesday to compel President Donald Trump to release Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s full record ahead of a Senate confirmation vote.

Merkley said Trump has withheld thousands of pages of documents from Kavanaugh’s record under “presidential privilege.”

The motion asks the court to force Trump to release those records, which Merkley says the Senate has a “constitutional responsibility” to review.

Since Merkley is a democrat, it’s likely that he hasn’t even read the Constitution, which clearly states, in Article II, regarding the powers of the Executive branch: “He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law”

A copy of the “proposed order” to the courts has been posted on Scribd:

You may recall that the judge presiding over this matter is Judge Amy Berman Jackson, the same judge who was set to preside over the Manafort trial.
