WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today following the Senate vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh:
“Today we at Priests for Life are so grateful to the U.S. Senators who voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh. They have done the right thing by placing such an eminently qualified judge, with such an impeccable record, on the High Court. This is truly a great day for America, and brings the judiciary closer to what the founders intended: A branch of government that applies the Constitution and the laws, rather than re-writing them.
“We are likewise grateful to President Trump for nominating Judge Kavanaugh and standing with him, and to the Republican Senate leadership for their steadfast commitment to fairness and to preserving this confirmation process from being hijacked by the Senate Democrats.
“This confirmation process was the low point in American politics, and placed on full display the way that today’s Democrat party is willing to engage in character assassination, distortion of one’s record, and childish smear tactics in order to advance its political agenda. It was and should remain profoundly disturbing that so many in public office have discarded the basic legal premise of innocent until proven guilty.
“The midterm elections, for which early voting has already begun in some states, is a time to apply what we have learned in the last few weeks. Let’s reject the Democrat agenda of search and destroy tactics and elect more Republican candidates who will restore sanity and fairness to the business of American politics.”
