Dhillon on Democrats Trying To Stonewall Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings

Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox Business’ ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight’ To Discuss Democrats Trying To Stonewall Kavanaughs’ Confirmation Hearings

According to Dhillon:

It’s a big stretch to think that President Trump will have anything of interest before the Supreme Court – he’s halfway through his first term and stuff doesn’t get to the Supreme Court that quickly. This shows the extreme desperation of the Democrats because from the point of view of relative extremism versus being mainstream, Justice Kavanaugh will be a very mainstream justice. So they’re not going to get a better Justice out of a Republican president. This is just delay and desperation – they can’t fight him on merit so they’re fighting him in this illegitimate manner. It is unfortunate because Americans deserve a full Supreme Court that can hear these cases and make decisions for all of us. So, if they have messaging and something substantive to complain about, they would be focusing on that.

I think what could be found in that vault could be embarrassing from a social point of view, but legally problematic, I don’t see it, or even politically. It is very desperate to be rummaging through the trash to see what the cat dragged in and put that in the public sphere. The fact that the president had private settlements of people who were in his life is irrelevant in terms of the great president he is cutting taxes and doing all sorts of great things for America. Again, this shows a lack of substance on the part of the Democrats. If they had something better in terms of jobs, the economy, border and national security, they’d be running on that.

Well, maybe, but there are a lot of ifs there and it still doesn’t spell legal jeopardy for the president. We have to look at this in the big picture of it being a unique president, someone in business throughout his life. I have reached settlements for client similar to the ones we are talking about. Rich people, successful people are regularly shaken down like this. This is the ordinary course of business for Mr. Trump which I bet he’ll be able to prove if it comes to that. It is not a campaign finance violation and that is another pie-in-the-sky fantasy by your New York friends you see on the street and what I see in San Francisco. That’s just not the way the law works.
