Freedom Partners Praises Trump Administration’s Nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for SCOTUS; Urges Swift, Bipartisan Confirmation

Post by Freedom Partners

Arlington, VA – Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce today is praising the Trump administration’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court of the United States. Freedom Partners is also urging swift confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh, given his bipartisan confirmation to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 2006.

Freedom Partners Executive Vice President Nathan Nascimento issued the following statement:

“President Trump has again delivered on his promise to nominate a Supreme Court justice who will interpret the law, uphold the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, and refrain from legislating from the bench. Judge Kavanaugh will make an exceptional justice, carrying with him excellent qualifications and the judicial restraint worthy of our nation’s highest court. Republicans and Democrats should unite behind Judge Kavanaugh and swiftly confirm him to the Supreme Court.”

Brett Kavanaugh, a graduate of Yale Law School and former clerk to Justice Anthony Kennedy, received bipartisan support in 2006 for his confirmation to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. During his 12 years on the federal bench, Kavanaugh has demonstrated a commitment to the rule of law and is widely respected for his principled approach to interpreting the Constitution as written.
