Several senators spoke on the chamber floor about Judge Brett Kavanugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), a member of the Judiciary Committee, spoke against Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. He criticized the president for “outsourcing” the recommendation of candidates, and worried that Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act be overturned. He called Judge Kavanaugh the “dream candidate” of the NRA and reviewed gun control cases that came to his court. He also commented on some the judge’s other rulings.

Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) said Democrats have already pre-judged the nominee, that many of his decisions have been adopted by the Supreme Court, and that the job of a judge is not to make policy but to apply the law equally. close
