When the Senate Judiciary Committee begins its confirmation hearing Tuesday on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court we can expect to see Democrats wage an all-out battle to keep the extraordinarily qualified judge off the nation’s highest court.
Hillary Shelton of the NAACP declared that Kavanaugh is a “dangerous criminal.” Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., warned that Kavanaugh “wants to pave the path to tyranny.” Sen. Cory Booker, D-N. J., called the judge’s nomination “alarming.”
First, Kavanaugh’s legal credentials are impeccable.
Second, Kavanaugh’s judicial philosophy is faithful to the Founding Father’s vision.
Third, Kavanaugh’s personal character meets the high standard necessary for serving on the high court.
