First of all, looking at Justice Anthony Kennedy’s record, why would President Trump want him to retire anyway?

But according to The New Republic, Trump had a “shady” relationship with Justice Kennedy and just maybe induced him to retire, giving Trump another Supreme Court pick.

Yes, we’re back to that loan that Justice Kennedy’s son gave to Trump that gave Neera Tanden the vapors, even though MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle, who worked with Justin Kennedy at Deutsche Bank, debunked the whole thing.

However, law professor and U.S. Senate candidate Richard W. Painter isn’t satisfied and thinks he’s found a way to stall Trump from appointing another justice before the big blue wave in November: demand that the Senate Judiciary Committee investigate the relationship between Trump and Kennedy.
