ON MONDAY, President Trump nominated Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court — a pick viewed to be enrobed with the expected conservative bona fides.
By Tuesday, though, critics were questioning whether one aspect of Kavanaugh’s legal history made him especially appealing to the president. Pointing to an article Kavanaugh published in 2009 in the Minnesota Law Review, some in the media suggested that the nominee thinks a president cannot be indicted. As The Washington Post’s Fact Checker reports, however, the text on Kavanaugh’s legal paper trail is not quite so black and white.
