Philadelphia (1210 WPHT) - Delaware Senator Chris Coons discussed the confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh with Dom Giordano on TalkRadio 1210 WPHT. Coons described his private meeting with Judge Kavanaugh prior to the confirmation hearing.

“We had a good meeting, I’ve known Judge Kavanaugh [for] 30 years. We were roughly contemporaries in law school; he was a grade ahead of me, initially. Then we clerked in the 3rd circuit out of the Wilmington, Delaware courthouse before he went on to clerk out of the 9th [circuit] and then onto the Supreme Court.”

Coons continued, “My disagreements with him, my discussion with him, privately in my office and then I sent him a follow up letter that detailed what I was going to question him about in the hearings, then in the hearings were really all about his judicial philosophy and a few areas where I think; speeches he’s given, law review articles he’s written, decisions he’s rendered on the D.C. bench suggests he is outside the mainstream on a few critical issues. “

 Coons went on to explain Kavanaugh is outside the mainstream when it comes to Presidential power when it comes to special investigations like the one with Bob Mueller.

“Supreme Court precedent and the majority of legal opinion, both in the academy and on the bench today is that if you allow a President to shield himself from an investigation by firing the spelling the special counsel, refusing to comply with subpoenas, you may accomplish what is Judge Kavanaugh’s stated goal, allowing the President to focus on national leadership, unbothered or harried by investigation.”

He continued, “But you may also prevent the public and Congress from every knowing you have a criminal President.”

Coons told Giordano that after the investigation has concluded he would accept the results whatever they may be. He also touted that he agrees with fellow Senator Graham’s advice to the President regarding the investigation.

“ Lindsey’s [Graham] best argument is this. The best way for the President to permanently clear his name of any of these allegations is to let Bob Mueller finish his investigation. If he concludes there was no conclusion, no conspiracy to share information between Russia and Trump, I will accept that. A majority of Americans will accept that. “
