Vice President Mike Pence discusses Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh
In addition to being the Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence is also the president of the Senate. That is why his views on Judge Brett Kavanaugh are extremely important. Here’s what he told me:
PENCE: He's a man of integrity, with a lifetime of calling to public service as a family man, a man of faith, but Judge Brett Kavanaugh is also someone who has a proven record of commitment to the constitutional principles of limited government, of religious liberty, of the Second Amendment. You can see that in his record on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals in a very real sense.
We think he is the most qualified person in America to fill that seat on the Supreme Court.
BORIS: How are you feeling about the confirmation?
PENCE: The Senate has an obligation to advise and consent. The hearings will be coming up, but we have every confidence that Judge Kavanaugh will acquit himself well as he meets with members of the Senate. The frustrating thing for us, Boris, is that many liberals in the United States Senate have already announced their opposition to Judge Kavanaugh on before he's even had an opportunity to make his case or answer questions before the Senate, and it just shows you, once again the obstruction that we faced on so many of our appointments and so much legislation in the United States Senate.
I hope there's bipartisan support as there was in a limited way with Justice Gorsuch.
Here’s the Bottom Line: Judge Brett Kavanaugh is fully qualified to be on the Supreme Court. Democrats in the Senate should not let partisanship cloud their judgement, and they should give Judge Brett Kavanaugh fair consideration.
