Senator Cory Booker hinted at the Democrats’ potential plot to block President Trump’s future Supreme Court Pick Friday, saying the White House should only nominate a candidate after the Mueller probe wraps up.
Booker was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked to weigh-in on Justice Anthony Kennedy’s recent retirement announcement, saying Trump should wait because he’s still the “subject of a criminal investigation.”
“This president is the subject of a criminal investigation,” Booker said. “Here you have a president that’s making a whole lot of loyalty tests and other things from people.”
“Should that person be able to right now, while this criminal investigation’s going on, be allowed to make an appointment? I say no,” Booker added.
