WATCH: Newt Gingrich Says If Democrats Subpoena Donald Trump’s Tax Returns, It Will Go to the Supreme Court ‘and We’ll See Whether or Not the Kavanaugh Fight Was Worth It’

Even after multiple sexual assault allegations upended what was supposed to be a smooth confirmation process and still after Kavanaugh had the lowest popularity of any Supreme Court nominee in recent history, President Donald Trump and Republicans stuck firmly by him.

Many asked why the president refused to consider another nominee whose behavior didn’t introduce so many questions.

The president blamed Democrats for the tumult instead.

Republicans followed suit, painting the Democrats as desperate and despicable for daring to hold up the nomination of such a saintly man, and they continue to use the confirmation hearing to characterize democrats as an “angry mob” on the campaign trail in hopes of maintaining their majorities in the legislative branch.

The assurance that Kavanaugh would remain loyal to the troubled president (something we know Donald Trump values) could explain the party’s tenacity throughout the confirmation process.

Unfortunately, Gingrich is right. It won’t be long before the American public finds out if Kavanaugh’s allegiance will be to the president or the country.
