Brooks Praises President Trump's Nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to U.S. Supreme Court
Washington, DC— Monday night, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) praised President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
Brooks said, “President Trump made an excellent choice when he nominated Neil Gorsuch, and he has repeated his standard of excellence by nominating Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. It is a bedrock principle of the American Republic that justices should not substitute their policy beliefs for the policy beliefs of America’s properly elected Congresses and presidents. Judicially activist justices betray the Constitution and America when they deem and substitute their own policy beliefs superior to those of elected officials who are tasked by our Constitution with making American law. Brett Kavanaugh has an established record of upholding the Constitution and federal law without inserting his personal political views into his decisions. As such, I look forward to his quick confirmation by the Senate.”
Brooks continued, “America’s founding fathers brilliantly created three branches of government, with each being a check on the other two, and each having a defined role. Congress makes law, the Executive Branch implements law, and the Judiciary interprets and applies law. In my view, America is burdened with too many liberal, activist federal justices and judges who fail to abide by their role as limited by the Constitution, and I am pleased President Trump nominated a judge who understands the importance of limiting his role to that intended by America’s founding fathers.”
