The top liberal fear of Judge Brett Kavanaugh being confirmed to the Supreme Court is that he will work to overturn Roe v. Wade (and maybe even ban contraception — not), but a popular (and debunked) Democrat talking point against Kavanaugh is that he allegedly suggested that a president should not be subject to civil litigation or criminal investigation while in office.

Here’s 2020 hopeful Cory Booker completely misinterpreting what Kavanaugh said:

And Booker was at it again Wednesday, suggesting that Kavanaugh would rule the Mueller investigation unconstitutional.

The Senate Judiciary Committee chimed in to set Booker straight on an important distinction:

“Bound to spark questions” must be the liberal version of “Republicans pounce.”

Oops.

Never mind the facts, though: Booker’s followers ate it up.
