"Time for President Trump to Take a Long, Hard Look at the Kavanaugh Nomination”


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, D.C. — Over the weekend, a second individual emerged with allegations involving inappropriate sexual conduct on the part of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Below is a statement from Caroline Fredrickson, President of the American Constitution Society.

“It is time for President Trump to take a long hard look and decide whether Brett Kavanaugh truly exhibits the integrity, values, and judgment Americans expect from those who serve on the Supreme Court.

“From the beginning, Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination process has been plagued by evasiveness, hidden documents, and questions about his truthfulness. Now he has been accused of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior by more than one woman from his past, raising further questions about his overall character and fitness for the bench.

“This is a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court. We need to put a hold on Kavanaugh’s confirmation process so these issues can be fully investigated and resolved. His accusers—indeed all Americans—deserve nothing less.”
