Budd Applauds President Trump Selection Of Brett Kavanaugh To Join Supreme Court
The late Justice Scalia put it perfectly back in 2006 when he said that "the Constitution is not a living organism, it is a legal document. It says something and doesn’t say other things."
Washington D.C. -- U.S. Representative Ted Budd (R-NC) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s selection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court:
“During the 2016 presidential election, millions of Americans went to the polls to cast their vote as the future of the Supreme Court weighed in the balance. The fear among conservatives was that activist judges could continue to be added to the high court. That changed with the election of Donald Trump.
“The selection of Brett Kavanaugh shows once again that the president is keeping his promise to put a serious constitutionalist on the court, beginning with Neil Gorsuch. A graduate of Yale Law School, Judge Kavanaugh has served on the D.C. Circuit Court since 2006 and his record suggests he will apply the law as written, not as he wished it would be.
“The late Justice Scalia put it perfectly back in 2006 when he said that ‘the Constitution is not a living organism, it is a legal document. It says something and doesn’t say other things.’
“I look forward to his swift confirmation by my colleagues in the Senate.”
