WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the Senate voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

"Today’s confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh is the result of a partisan, hypocritical process that Republicans implemented to achieve their political ends at the expense of an independent and impartial Supreme Court. In spite of clearly demonstrating that he lacks the temperament or impartiality that a Supreme Court Justice requires, Republicans rammed through this nomination without a real investigation of the issues that were raised during the course of the hearing and the veracity of the testimony of the witnesses.

"Republicans should be ashamed of putting political objectives over the integrity of our nation’s highest Court."
