US Representative Darrell Issa’s Statement on Justice Kavanaugh

Justice Brent KavanaughOct 6, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet, released the following statement on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

“The swearing in this evening of Justice Brett Kavanaugh brings a just and honorable end to a terribly distressing confirmation process that repeatedly threatened to upend the most vital standards of fundamental fairness. That it did not succeed will restore at least some confidence that the system can work as intended, and that the American experiment has once again proved as durable as ever.

“What should never be forgotten, however, is the damage that has been done. This was supposed to be a fair and reasoned review of a nominee’s record on the bench, understanding of the Constitution, and vision of the role of the federal judiciary. It was instead a carefully coordinated political attack that was plotted in secret, coordinated among Senators and staff, and intended to destroy a good man. This did, indeed, replace the doctrine of advice and consent with a mission to search and destroy.

“It is my full expectation that as an Associate Justice, Brett Kavanaugh will display the same careful consideration for the facts, adherence to the law as written, and impartial and independent judicial temperament that has marked his entire judicial career. I further trust that he will be able to look past the terrible way he and his family were treated by powerful interests in Washington, keep faith that he persevered through it all, and serve with honor and distinction for many years to come.

“Congratulations, Justice Kavanaugh.”
