White House Won’t Deny Trump Made Secret Deal With Anthony Kennedy To Nominate Brett Kavanaugh

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah did not deny an NBC News report that said Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy “received assurances” from President Donald Trump that federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh (Kennedy’s former clerk) would be nominated to be his replacement.
