White House doesn't deny report Trump made secret deal with Kennedy over retirement, replacement

It's not supposed to work like this.
AARON RUPAR JUL 10, 2018, 9:24 AM

During an CNN interview on Tuesday morning, White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah did not deny an NBC report that outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy “received assurances” from President Trump that if he retired, Judge Brett Kavanaugh — one of Kennedy’s former clerks — would be nominated to be his replacement.




Asked repeatedly if some sort of deal between Trump and Kennedy was struck before Kennedy announced his retirement, Shah dodged, saying things like “I’m not going to read out private conversations that Justice Kennedy had with either members of the White House or the president,” and, “Justice Kennedy can speak for himself.” But what Shah didn’t do is deny that the NBC report is accurate.

4. I got to think by the end of the day

there will be a firm denial. Not sure they have thought through the implications given Kennedy's 5-4 decisions at the end of the term. Kennedy's legacy is definitely in jeopardy. He may go down in history as corrupt. You would have thought he knew better.

8. Can't he do anything straight and honest?

I guess not. Always has to hedge his bets. Always has to have an angle.

9. As a leader that's a great skill to have

But as every last flippin thing he does is about him and not about the country he's supposed to be leading it's a skill learned in criminal settings.

I don't understand why there's some people to whom it just hasn't dawned on yet that there's not only something wrong there's something terribly wrong.

Willfully dense or just plain clueless, I think they need to be shocked into reality, I hope Mr Mueller makes a few moves pretty soon.

With the dolts coverage finally swung from his reality to ours there's a new screw up being exposed daily it seems, I want more.

It isn't coincidence when you need pages to list every thing they claim as.

I can't flippin wait, this is going to be epic.
