Conservative Legal Community Calls for Swift Confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh After Humble and Steadfast Testimony Before Senate Judiciary Committee

Judicial Crisis Network’s Chief Counsel and Policy Director, Carrie Severino
“After two long days of Democrat histrionics and extremism, Judge Kavanaugh demonstrated that he has the temperament, humility, and independence to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court.  Despite endless demands by Democrats that he act like a politician, Judge Kavanaugh repeatedly demonstrated that he has a record of being a fair and independent judge who will adhere to the Constitution.”

“Senators Manchin, Heitkamp, Donnelly and other red state Democrats should distance themselves from this extremist behavior. There is no reason to wait. They should buck the extremist wing of their Party and announce they are voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”

Former chief nominations counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Gregg Nunziata
“It is truly unfortunate that many Senate Democrats chose to use this week’s hearing as a platform for political performance art designed to please their party’s base, rather than as a serious opportunity to examine Judge Kavanaugh’s extraordinary qualifications and thoughtful approach to the law. This behavior demeaned an important process and sought to deprive the American people from their opportunity to become familiar with the nominee.”

“Despite these unprecedented distractions, Judge Kavanaugh demonstrated beyond any doubt that he belongs on the Supreme Court. Over two marathon days of questioning, Americans saw a brilliant, yet humble public servant, with a judicial philosophy that respects the rule of law and the American people. The few undecided senators now have an easy choice to make: they can vote to confirm a highly qualified mainstream judge to the Supreme Court, or they can side with the hard-left activists who regularly disrupted these hearings.”

President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Ed Whelan
“In the face of rude protests and silly antics, Judge Kavanaugh demonstrated throughout his hearing the intellect, legal mastery, character, and temperament that earned him the American Bar Association’s unanimous highest rating. Judge Kavanaugh forcefully explained his principles of originalism and textualism and his commitment to an independent judiciary. Judge Kavanaugh rejected Senate Democrats’ dangerous vision of judging as politics, and he thoroughly refuted their false claims and distortions about his record.”

Attorney and spokeswoman for the Judicial Crisis Network, Gayle Trotter
“After an embarrassing performance by judiciary committee Democrats and their extremist interrupters, Judge Kavanaugh proved, unequivocally, that he has the temperament, experience, and independence to serve on the supreme court.  Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp, Joe Donnelly and other red state Democrats risk their political careers if they align themselves with the far left wing of their party in Chuck Schumer, Corey Booker and Kamala Harris. After Judge Kavanaugh’s stellar performance before the nation, all senators should vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh because there is no one better for the Supreme Court.”

The craziness at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination got even crazier, when Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., dramatically announced before the TV cameras that he was releasing what he said was a confidential email from Kavanaugh in violation of Senate rules.
