Kavanaugh: This Confirmation Process is a National Disgrace

"The Constitution gives the Senate an important role in the confirmation process, but you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy."

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh blasted Senate Democrats over his confirmation process on Thursday, calling it a “national disgrace.”

“This confirmation process has become a national disgrace,” Kavanaugh said. “The Constitution gives the Senate an important role in the confirmation process, but you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy.”

“Since my nomination in July, there has been a frenzy on the left to come up with something, anything, to block my nomination,” Kavanaugh said.

Kavanaugh then blasted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for saying he would oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination with “everything he’s got.”

“A Democratic senator on this Committee publicly referred to me as evil – evil, think about that word – and said that those who supported me were, quote, ‘complicit in evil,'” Kavanaugh said.

“I understand the passions of the moment, but I would say to those senators, your words have meaning,” Kavanaugh continued. “Given comments like those, is it any surprise that people have been willing to do anything? To make any physical threat against my family?”

“You sowed the wind. For decades to come, I fear the whole country will reap the whirlwind,” Kavanaugh concluded.
