Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin, responding to the Judiciary Committee’s announcement of the confirmation hearings dates for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and supporting Chairman Grassley in moving the confirmation process forward.
“Today Senator Chuck Grassley has kept a promise to the American people by setting timely dates for the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. We fully support Chairman Grassley’s decision to advance the process of confirming this very qualified nominee. Liberal Democrats don’t need more time to review Judge Kavanaugh’s record, they just don’t like the fact that his record shows he is fair, independent and adheres to the Constitution, so they are now resorting to obstruction and gridlock to extend their fishing expedition. The Democrats’ complaints ring hollow given how they’ve obstructed virtually every effort to effectively govern since President Trump took office. These actions not only attack the confirmation process but insult the American people who deserve to have a fair and independent judge who will honor the Constitution and the rule of law. We look forward to the hearings in September and a prompt confirmation so Judge Kavanaugh can take his seat on the Supreme Court when it convenes in early October.”
