Letter: Remember, Supreme Court Justices serve for life

Conservatives are rightly celebrating that their party gets to pick another Supreme Court Justice. Before they rally around Judge Kavanaugh, I would urge that they reconsider.

In writing about former President Bill Clinton, the judge wrote that presidents should not be bothered by civil or even criminal lawsuits. He wrote that such distractions would make worse presidents. In essence, he wrote that then President Bill Clinton should be above the law.

While you may rejoice that this would get rid of the Russia investigation, remember, Supreme Court Justices serve for life. Would you be rejoicing if the majority of the American people had gotten their way, and the Supreme Court was in danger of enshrining that Hillary Clinton as above the law?
