Nolan Statement on the Nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court

Press Release

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] U.S. Congressman Rick Nolan released the following statement today on the President’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“The most egregious aspect of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court is his notion that the President of the United States should be above the law, and not answerable to the law while in office. In that regard, the President’s true motivation in choosing Judge Kavanaugh is questionable. The bedrock foundation of our American legal system, which is admired throughout the world, is that nobody – not even the President of the United States – is above the law. Moreover, it’s apparent that if successful, the President’s choice would move an already right-wing Supreme Court majority even further out of the mainstream, rolling back a century of progress on women’s health and reproductive rights, human rights, voting rights, consumer protection rights, and the rights of workers to organize.”
