Boyle Condemns Senate Confirmation Of Judge Brett Kavanaugh To U.S. Supreme Court
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-13) released the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to become the 114th Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States:
“Today, partisanship in our country rose to a sickening level. The newest member of the nation’s highest court faces credible sexual assault allegations. Still, Senate Republicans rammed his nomination through after a rushed, sham investigation, putting their political gain above all else. Mr. Kavanaugh spewed partisan vitriol at his confirmation hearings, demonstrated a complete lack of judicial temperament, and now it seems he lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee. They held their nose and bowed to President Trump to get their tax giveaway, and looked the other way on Judge Kavanaugh to get their conservative court. This is a sad chapter for our country, and the institution of the Senate.”
Congressman Boyle serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee as well as the House Budget Committee.
