Democrats and the Rule of Lawyers

David Catron, The American Spectator

The reason the Democrats tried to destroy now-Justice Kavanaugh is that they need a left-leaning Supreme Court to facilitate the machinations of their oily advocates.

The Democrats have assiduously undermined that principle, but this is as dangerous for them as it is for us.
