Republican leaders who tolerate Donald Trump’s obsession with building a border wall thereby impugn the integrity of the party’s basic philosophy.

Speaking the unspeakable—what happens if Kavanaugh withdraws?
A Kavanaugh withdrawal then does not mean Trump and the GOP can just plop another Kavanaugh type on the bench and get that pick quickly confirmed. It will ignite another time-consuming fight. This time, time won’t be on the GOP’s side.
