Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D-CA) said that Thursday that America needs to have a functioning Supreme Court that is free of politics.

A reporter had asked Becerra during a press conference if he supports the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

“I think we need to have a functioning Supreme Court that is free of politics and all the dysfunction we’ve seen in Washington, D.C.,” Becerra said. “If there’s a true confirmation process that’s allowed to move forward in the Senate, which it seems like there might not be, I think it would be an injustice not for the Supreme Court, but for the American people.”

“I’ll let the process move forward in a way that I hope gives everyone, not just the senators who must vote but all Americans, an opportunity to see that our institutions are functioning,” Becerra said. “Our democracy requires to have functioning institutions, and we have to have that check and balance on the different branches of government.”
