Leonard Leo Statement Regarding SCOTUS Vacancy and Potential Nominee

Statement from Leonard Leo, Outside Advisor to the President for Judicial Nominations, regarding Court Vacancy

(Note: As of today, Mr. Leo is on a leave of absence from his position as Executive Vice President of the Federalist Society)

“President Trump’s list of potential nominees for this vacancy includes many of the very best judges in America, judges who have records of being fair and independent and applying the Constitution as it was written.  I expect the nominee to be like Justice Gorsuch, to demonstrate excellence in every respect, and to earn widespread support from the American people, and bipartisan support for confirmation in the Senate.”
