Should Gorsuch be considered for the Supreme Court while the legitimacy of the Trump presidency is in question?

Hearings begin tomorrow on Trump’s nominee Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court.

If Democrats were smart, they wouldn’t focus on Gorsuch’s credentials or views. Instead, they’d focus on Trump, and remind America that:
 

1. President Obama nominated an excellent justice, Merrick Garland, But Senate Republicans wouldn’t even consider Garland because, they said, Obama had no legitimate basis for making such a nomination because he was in the last year of office.

2. Gorsuch has been nominated by a president whose legitimacy in nominating a Supreme Court justice is far more questionable than Obama’s.

3. At least count, 4 different congressional committees are investigating whether Trump or his campaign aides conspired with Russian operatives to get him elected president. The FBI, CIA, and National Security Agency are also investigating. The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee says circumstantial evidence already links Trump aids to the Russian operatives.

4. Trump’s legitimacy is also under question because he is taking money from foreign governments, in violation of the "emoluments clause" of the Constitution; he won’t release his tax returns, and several courts have already found him to be acting unconstitutionally in creating a religious test for entry into the United States.


I don't think Gorsuch should be considered for the Supreme Court until the cloud of illegitimacy hanging over the Trump presidency is removed.

No he shouldn't but if Pence becomes the next President his pick won't be any better I'm sure.
