Congressmen Brady, Smith, and Sessions Release Statements on Judge Kavanaugh's Appointment to Supreme Court
After President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve as an Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court, Congressmen Kevin Brady, Lamar Smith, and Pete Sessions released the following statements.
Rep. Kevin Brady: "President Trump made a very strong choice in Judge Brett Kavanaugh, another qualified conservative voice like Judge Gorsuch, for the Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh is a well-respected, pro-life justice that believes in the rule of law and upholding the constitution. President Trump has transformed our courts through his nominations. The impact is generational. I look forward to Kavanaugh's confirmation to our high court soon."
Rep. Lamar Smith: “With his pick of Judge Kavanaugh, President Trump named a very qualified and distinguished jurist. I am optimistic that as a Supreme Court Associate Justice Kavanaugh would not legislate from the bench, would adhere to the Constitution and not let his political views influence his legal decisions. I hope my colleagues in the Senate will give Judge Kavanaugh fair consideration and confirm him quickly.”
Rep. Pete Sessions: “Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a proven public servant and brilliant legal mind, and I have no doubt he will continue to uphold the rule of law as a member of the United States Supreme Court. I am thrilled to see President Trump nominate yet another supremely qualified Justice who will interpret the law of the land as it was intended and apply it accurately to the critical cases the court is tasked with reviewing. I look forward to the United States Senate swiftly approving this qualified candidate to ensure the highest court in our land is fully equipped with Justices committed to the fundamental principles of small government, separation of powers, and a strict adherence to the Constitution.”
