hearing-shows-kavanaugh-must-not-be-confirmed-says-the-leadership-conference
(Last Updated On: December 29, 2018)

Brett Kavanaugh, the choice of President Trump to replace the late Antonin Scalia, went through a bruising confirmation hearing process that, because of the Republican voting advantage, will be for naught. Still, the effort to communicate the concern that Kavanaugh’s tone-deaf with respect to civil rights, has commenced.

Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, issued the following statement on the conclusion of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing:

“At the end of these four days, one thing is crystal clear—Brett Kavanaugh must not be confirmed to the Supreme Court. He offered no assurance that his extreme views wouldn’t follow him to the highest court in the land, and he refused to prove that he would be an independent check on the president who nominated him.

“Kavanaugh offered no hope that he would be a neutral and fair-minded justice committed to civil and human rights, protections for those with pre-existing conditions, the ability of women to control their own bodies, the rights of LGBTQ people, voting rights, labor rights, immigrant rights, disability rights, environmental protection, and the separation of powers. Moreover, some of his statements and recently disclosed writings show problematic inconsistencies and call into question the veracity of his previous sworn testimony before Congress.

“Kavanaugh unwillingness to speak truthfully reinforces the need for the Senate and the public to access his Bush White House records, most of which continue to be blocked by a coordinated partisan effort to hide the nominee’s record. And when some senators challenged the unprecedented secrecy behind this nomination and demanded transparency, they were chastised and threatened with expulsion. Senators and the American people are entitled to review the records of anyone considered for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

“All senators must take seriously their constitutional advice and consent role in this process and reject this nomination.”
