Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

“Today the Senate put a good and impartial judge on the Supreme Court.

“Throughout this process Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his family have been dragged through hell by Democrats and members of the media who have abandoned any pretense of fairness and objectivity. Democrats and the media have tried to defeat Judge Kavanaugh with no regard for due process, the presumption of innocence, or facts themselves.

“In the coming weeks, months, and years the behavior of the Democrats will be remembered as nothing short of disgraceful.

“The Senate rejected their campaign of intimidation and innuendo and accepted Judge Kavanaugh’s long judicial record that speaks to his exceptional character and temperament.

“I applaud Majority Leader McConnell, Chairman Grassley, and every Republican Senator who stood tall and ensured Judge Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed.”
