There is no question Democrats still have it out for Brett Kavanaugh.
Liberal activists have enlisted some of the most powerful forces in the party to bring down the Supreme Court Justice.
And now George Soros gave Brett Kavanaugh one ultimatum that will have you fuming.
The Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on the Constitutionality of the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Board.
Barack Obama created this Soviet-style entity with dictator-like power to regulate the economy when Obama signed the 2009 Dodd-Frank bill into law.
Unlike other independent agencies which are run by a multi-person board, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has but a single director.
Mortgage lender PHH sued over a 109 million dollar fine levied during the Obama administration claiming the agency’s structure violated the Constitution.
Brett Kavanaugh agreed and in two rulings railed against Obama’s illegal set up for the Consumer Financial Protection Board.
But now that the case is in front of the Supreme Court the George Soros funded Demand Justice is claiming Kavanaugh must recuse himself from the coming Supreme Court arguments.
During his tenure as a federal appeals court judge in Washington, Kavanaugh argued that the bureau’s structure was unconstitutional. According to the groups, Kavanaugh will have difficulty ruling impartially in the case, known as Seila Law v. CFPB, which is set to be argued in the early days of March 2020.
“We call on Justice Kavanaugh to recuse himself from hearing a case on which he has already made up his mind,” Demand Justice, Demand Progress Education Fund, the Revolving Door Project and Allied Progress wrote in a statement.
“The law clearly states that judges should recuse themselves when their impartiality might reasonably be questioned. Brett Kavanaugh has already ruled on the underlying legal question in this case. He cannot plausibly claim to be open to arguments from both sides,” the groups added.
In a 2016 opinion and a 2018 dissent, Kavanaugh shared his views on the bureau, saying in 2016, “We therefore hold that the CFPB is unconstitutionally structured.”
This case is one of the marquee matters before the court this term.
If the Supreme Court strikes down the Consumer Financial Protection Board as unconstitutional, this Obama-era relic will go away as Senate Republicans have zero desire to save this part of former President Obama’s disastrous legacy with new legislation by making the board’s leadership structure pass legal muster.
