White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said Tuesday there is no circumstance under which the president would rescind Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.


President Donald Trump has stood by his SCOTUS nominee despite the fact that two women have accused him of sexual assault on the record. There have been no firsthand witnesses to corroborate either woman’s claim that Kavanaugh assaulted them in high school or college. (Kavanaugh Confirms Trump Support — ‘He Called Me This Afternoon)

MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson asked Shah during a Tuesday morning interview, “Is there any circumstance under which the White House or President Trump would pull Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination?”

“Absolutely not,” Shah replied.

“We firmly believe in Judge Kavanaugh, we believe in his nomination, we think that he’s going to make a fantastic Supreme Court Justice,” Shah said. “The president made a great choice, an inspired choice in July in nominating him, and we’re moving forward.”
