Illinois politicians are taking sides on President Trump’s pick for the U.S. Supreme Court. Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin says Brett Kavanaugh “consistently favors big business and undermines protections for consumers, workers, women and the environment.”
Durbin also says he’s troubled by Kavanaugh’s view that sitting presidents should not be investigated for civil or criminal offenses.
But Republican Governor Bruce Rauner says Kavanaugh’s credentials are impressive, and says he deserves a fair hearing and a swift vote on his nomination.
