Unindicted co-conspirators shouldn't pick SCOTUS Justices

You've probably heard that Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former personal attorney, pleaded guilty to eight felonies, some of which implicated the President in felony campaign finance violations. Despite all of this, Power-Hungry Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, has no intention of stopping Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court. 

As Jed Shugerman wrote on Slate:

"[Michael Cohen's] felonies raise increasingly overwhelming questions about the legitimacy of Trump’s election. Now that the evidence is so inescapable, they raise inevitable questions about the legitimacy of [Trump's] judicial appointments going forward."

Despite the cloud hanging over the legitimacy of Trump's appointments, Senator Maria Cantwell still has not said definitively that she will vote against Kavanaugh.

Today's Action - Call our Senators to Save SCOTUS

Call #1: Thank Senator Murray

Call: (202) 224-2621 or (206) 553-5545

Sample Script

"Hi, my name is {NAME} and I'm calling from {CITY, ZIP}. I want to thank Senator Murray for pledging to vote NO on Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Presidents implicated in serious crimes should never get to name Supreme Court justices."

Call #2: Push Senator Cantwell to make the right choice

Sen. Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441 or (206) 220-6400

Sample Script

"Hi, my name is {NAME} and I'm calling from {CITY, ZIP}. I am calling to ask Senator Cantwell to vote NO on Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Presidents implicated in serious crimes should never get to name Supreme Court justices. Will she do the right thing and publicly pledge to vote against Kavanaugh?"
