This is serious. The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign.
I would have liked to meet with Judge Kavanaugh personally before deciding how I'd vote. Even attempted to set up a meeting with him, though unfortunately the White House never responded. So I’m just going to say it.

I’ll be voting no on Judge Kavanaugh. Here’s why:
For the record, the President’s Chief of Staff and his attorney in an ongoing criminal investigation into the President’s campaign have no business showing up to a classified intelligence briefing.
Startling new numbers from the shutdown:
- 62% of federal workers depleted all or most of their savings
