Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to Twitter to express his negative opinions of Brett Kavanaugh, one of four candidates President Trump has selected to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on Tuesday.

The New York congressman expressed his beliefs that Kavanaugh is unfit to serve on the Supreme Court for his stated beliefs on net neutrality and powerful interests and his arguments against Obamacare. Schumer even questioned Kavanaugh’s ability to be impartial.

The Twitter rant concludes with Schumer begging the president to pick a nominee who wasn’t on the list of pre-approved candidates that the White House released last November.

Schumer also attacked another potential nominee in Amy Coney Barrett, by claiming she had passed President Trump’s “litmus test.” He accused her, like Kavanaugh, of being a pawn used by the president to overturn previous rulings that went the other way.

Both Kavanaugh and Barrett appear to be at the top of the President’s list of potential nominees. He will make the official announcement next Monday, on July 9.
