Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi: Nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to Supreme Court “Deeply Disturbing”

July 10, 2018
Press Release

SCHAUMBURG, IL – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, to the Supreme Court:

“President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a moment of great concern for millions of Americans. The next Justice to join the Court will be in a position to uphold or overturn key rulings preserving reproductive rights, access to affordable health care for all Americans, and legal protections preventing discrimination against our LGBTQ friends, relatives, and neighbors. In light of Judge Kavanaugh’s record on the bench and in legal scholarship, I find his nomination deeply disturbing.

From Linda Brown to James Obergefell, millions of Americans have depended on the Supreme Court to uphold their rights and protect them from discrimination. The Senate must ensure that Judge Kavanaugh will commit to preserving, protecting, and upholding those hard-won Constitutional rights and reject his nomination if he would turn his back on them.”
