Smith Statement on Nomination of Kavanaugh to Supreme Court
Washington, DC – Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States.
Rep. Smith: “With his pick of Judge Kavanaugh, President Trump named a very qualified and distinguished jurist. I am optimistic that as a Supreme Court Associate Justice Kavanaugh would not legislate from the bench, would adhere to the Constitution and not let his political views influence his legal decisions. I hope my colleagues in the Senate will give Judge Kavanaugh fair consideration and confirm him quickly. ”
