Illegal Activities of President Trump’s Inner Circles Underscore Why Kavanaugh’s Nomination Must Not Move Forward

(Washington, D.C.) Yesterday, Michael Cohen, the former attorney for President Trump, implicated the President in violating campaign finance laws when he acknowledged that he made payments to an adult film star and former Playboy model at the direction of Trump “for the principal purpose of influencing the election.”

The following is a statement by Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC):

“President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court not only threatens women’s health and very lives—but it threatens our entire democracy. What began as a bogus nomination process is now further tainted by the illegal activities of this administration’s inner circles. With so much on the line, this sham process must stop immediately.”
